Cookstown will go continental on the 1st and 2nd June 2019 when the food, flavours, sights and sounds of Europe and beyond return to Cookstown's town centre for a two day spring festival!

The Continental Market takes place along William Street in Cookstown from Saturday 1 June (9am – 9pm) and Sunday 2 June (11am - 6pm).

Organised by Mid Ulster District Council, in partnership with Cookstown Town Centre Forum, the continental market is part of Market Place Europe's spring tour, and will feature over 40 traders from as far afield as Morocco, India, Belgium, France, Russia, Holland, Spain and China, who will set up stalls alongside local traders from the weekly street market.
