Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
Nenagh Indoor Market opened last Saturday with over 30 traders and great support from the local community. There was a great buzz about the market as people traded and chatted and met up with friends and neighbours. The opening of the market adds a new shopping dimension to the town as it promotes local enterprises and back to town centre Saturday morning shopping. The market is conveniently located opposite the Nenagh Mart, beside the Arrabawn office block , up past Sean Quinns Service Station, and is only a short walk from Kenyon Street.
The indoor market is a bright, welcoming place and has been set up to enable local traders, food producers and crafts people to have a regular outlet for their products and services, and to provide an opportunity for local start-up businesses. The aim is to provide a broad mix of professional and amateur traders, who benefit and support each other, and provide the local community with a real opportunity to support the growth of local business and local jobs.
There was a great variety of products on offer including a wonderful selection of home baking from the kitchens of Nenagh and surrounding villages, there was local honey, there was jams and marmalades, coffee, tea and lots to talk about. The arts and crafts area was full with local enterprises displaying their wares, there was hats, scarves, lamps, lots of candles, home fragrance, handmade cards, sports gifts, sports shirts, pictures and so much more and so much more to come.There was also some great offers on bags of local turf ( the summer job started paying off ) and also on bags of wood kindling and wood blocks.
Some of the local town retailers embraced the market policy of working with local retail and promoted their shops up the town by offering money off vouchers and displaying and advising on new products. What was nice about the indoor market was the friendly atmosphere, the market felt positive, it was great to see the local community supporting local enterprise and on the wet day it was no one was in a rush to get away.
There were some reports from customers that they had difficulty finding the market, so next week there will be more flags and direction signs to guide customers to the market. The market is open every Saturday from 930am.
