A new Food Producers Market is being piloted in Llanelli Town Centre.

Following the success of food festivals held in the town previously, Carmarthenshire County Council and Ymlaen Llanelli have joined forces to bring this latest venture to run alongside its regular outdoor market.

Already several local produce traders have signed up for a stall with the first food market launching this Saturday, and every 3rd Saturday of the month thereafter.

More pitches are available to anyone selling local produce and some crafts.

Stall holders will need to supply their own gazebo and the cost of a 3metre by 3metre pitch is £15.

The council’s executive board member responsible for markets, Cllr David Jenkins said: “The food festival was such a hugely popular event and brought in record crowds to the town.

“A vibrant market attracts more visitors into the town, boosts our economy and showcases what our local traders and businesses have to offer. If this pilot proves to be successful then will look to make it a regular monthly event.”

Ymlaen Llanelli Chair, Lesley Richards, said: “Monthly markets are a staple in many towns across the country, so Llanelli’s new monthly food market will be a great step forward for our town centre.

“People love seeing what’s on offer from traders that attend the Ymlaen Llanelli events – the Llanelli Food and Drink Festival is always our most popular event with record turnouts each year so what better way to get things moving again than with a food producers market.
