Swinford Indoor Country Market

This month the Swinford Indoor Country Market will take place on Saturday the 3rd of September from 9.30-2pm, in the Swinford Cultural Centre (beside the new library).

Our market boasts a wide range of lovely stalls, each bringing us a variety of local produce ranging from fresh vegetables, homemade breads, cakes and a selection of plants, through to a a mixture of hand made crafts and jewellery.
This month there will a short craft workshop running for the children and we are delighted to welcome back some familiar faces to the market.

Whilst visiting the market, why not take a while to sit down and relax at the fabulous Railway Cafe where you can choose from a selection of homemade cakes, quiches and other light bites, whilst soaking up the warm and friendly atmosphere and listening to the traditional live music.

We look forward to seeing you all there.
