Earlestown Friday Retail Market

The historic Earlestown Friday Retail Market was first established over 700 years ago and is still going strong today.

What hasn't changed is the atmosphere a traditional market brings to any town, with over 150 stalls selling a wide range of fresh produce and products from local traders.

Situated in the centre of Earlestown, the outdoor market takes place every Friday throughout the year (except on public holidays) from 9.00am to 5.00pm. There is free parking and both the bus and train stations are close by.
