Markets are fantastic platform for small businesses, particularly start ups hoping to develop their businesses. They contribute to the development of our local economy, adding vibrancy to our towns by encouraging people to visit their high streets and shop locally. Limavady is a beautiful town with so much to offer shoppers, it really has something for everyone.

The cookery theatre was a massive success and a special word of thanks to compere Wendy Gallagher of Causeway Foodie Tours and all the chefs who gave up their time to demonstrate and share their knowledge, skills and encourage the use of local produce.

A spokesperson said: “Local markets can’t happen without a combined effort, we would like to thank all our traders, staff, volunteers, chefs, compere, The Roe Valley Chamber, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council for their support, and not forgetting everyone that came out to visit us on the day.

“There are two additional dates this year - Saturday, October 20 and Saturday, December 1 and we hope to see you there.
