Folktown Market is the exciting social enterprise at the heart of Folktown Community Interest Company. The market is located in Belfast's Bank Sq which is full of character and rich in heritage. Bank Sq has been newly refurbished with new surfaces, lights and bright new public artwork leading people in from Royal Avenue, as part of Folktown's mission to revitalise and bring life back to Bank Sq and the surrounding area. The Folktown Market plays a key role in developing the community socially and economically by creating opportunity and vibrant activity in the area.
The independently run market has been running since April 2015, and we have now moved to Saturdays from 12-5pm. Folktown Market is a traditional and artisan market experience with quality products and produce. It promotes Belfast, local produce and crafts by endeavouring to pick the best products locally from the most environmentally friendly production and with the fairest prices. At the Market you can find fresh Fruit & veg, Dairy & Meat, Spices, preserves & condiments, Bakery & confectionary, Garments & Other household items, Hot food/drink, and Arts & Crafts.
As an inclusive community that attracts customers and traders from all backgrounds, Folktown Market is the perfect place to meet people and do your shopping.
We are very much supportive of the Earth Market concept and Slow Food movement and wish to implement as many of their high standards as possible.
