Llangollen Country Market is held upstairs in the Town Hall, Castle Street on Fridays from the beginning of March to Christmas (except Good Friday and Eisteddfod week in July. We are open from 9.45am to 12.45pm and offer locally-produced items ranging from home-baked goods, honey, jams and chutneys, eggs, garden produce and plants, to quality cards, gifts and jewellery, hand-knits and stitch-craft. Refreshments are also available and there is a lift and wheelchair access. Many of our customers meet regularly for a cup of coffee and a chat on Friday mornings. We hope you will visit us when you are in town.
Would you like to learn, knitting, crochet, quilling and many more crafts? We are now offering free tuition during the market between 10.00 am and 12 noon. (Under 16s need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian). We look forward to seeing you!
We are delighted that Simon Collinge and Andrew Gale have joined the market and are now selling their new publication LLANGOLLEN COMMUNITY which showcases over 100 community groups in Llangollen. Special Summer price £9.00
There will be no market during Eisteddfod week as the Town Hall is used for preliminaries.
We will be joining the Honey Show in the Town Hall during the Food Festival weekend in October.
N.B. as we have to comply with the Welsh Government's legislation on single-use carrier bags, we now charge 5p for carrier bags used for goods apart from plants, vegetables etc. in the market. The money raised goes to local charities.
We are pleased to support the voluntary group, Cittaslow Llangollen, which recently won Cittaslow status for the town.

Llangollen Country Market (formerly Llangollen WI Market) was set up in 1977 and is part of Country Markets Ltd, a producers’ co-operative and non-profit making social enterprise, registered with the Financial Services Authority as an Industrial and Provident Society (see www.country-markets.co.uk)
Country Markets offer parents at home with small children, retired people or anyone with a few hours to spare, the opportunity to use and improve their skills and create some extra income (membership is open to anyone over the age of 16). It is an ideal way of gaining confidence, experience and expertise as well as providing social contact for people living in remote areas. Since the first WI Market held in Lewes, Sussex in 1919, Country Markets have always played an important part in the rural economy, providing a stepping stone to many successful businesses.
Please note: We are a producers' co-operative and all items on sale at the market are produced and grown by our members. Eggs are from members' own hens and ducks, while honey is produced by local beekeepers from hives in the Llangollen area.
