Cookstown Continental Market 2019
Cookstown Continental Market 2019.
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.
As well as mouth-watering dishes, from freshly made Paella to delicious Bratwurst Sausages, visitors to the market over the two day event will also be kept entertained with a variety of street entertainment and music.
 The Continental Market is the signature event for Cookstown and one which consistency brings huge numbers to the town centre. Given the line-up for this year’s event I have no doubt it will do the same. As well as being a great opportunity for local people and visitors alike to enjoy flavours from around the world, the continental market allows us to showcase Cookstown and all it has to offer to a large audience. 
With such an excellent array of entertainment planned over the two days, it’s sure to be a great weekend of fun and activity for all the family. I look forward to welcoming all our stall holders and experiencing the extra buzz in the town when the market kicks off on Saturday 1st June!”
