The flagship artisan market by Naturally North Coast & Glens on the beautiful Ballycastle Seafront. This is an excellent showcase of local food, culture, heritage, and traditions, and it is an ideal destination for anyone looking for an authentic experience.
These markets aim to keep things authentic, providing an opportunity to meet some of Northern Ireland’s many producers and creative small businesses.
They are a haven for anybody who cares about the quality and provenance of the food they eat and offer a large variety of exquisite handcrafted, artistic, tasty items, as well as the opportunity to interact with the artisan who created them.
But it’s not just the high quality of the items on offer that distinguishes the Market. It is also about the people and the place; locally based artisans and producers who are passionate about their craft represent the region.
The stallholders are themselves producers – people who grow, make, create, style, rear, craft, design or bake the products that they sell. It’s a place to explore, to ask questions, to discover new flavours, stumble upon raw talent, unearth entrepreneurship, nurture bygone mastery, and to savour a unique, buzzing atmosphere.
The market in Ballycastle is a perfect stopping point on a day out along the Causeway Coast, with its proximity to Ballycastle Beach, a picturesque friendly town with a wide selection of local coffee shops, restaurants, and independent shops, and close proximity to the many iconic attractions in the area.
The markets are free to enter and are also dog friendly provided dogs are on a lead.
The Ballycastle Seafront Artisan Market is delivered by Naturally North Coast & Glens, an award winning not for profit social enterprise.
