Looking ahead to the event, the Mayor said: “Drumceatt Square is a great venue for Roe Valley Speciality Market and I’m really looking forward to its return later this month. We have a strong local producers’ network across the area and our markets offer a great opportunity to meet new and returning customers while sharing the stories behind their goods. The Cookery Theatre promises added entertainment and I would encourage everyone to come along and enjoy what is set to be a great day in Limavady.”

A spokesperson for the Roe Valley chamber said: “The Roe Valley Chamber has been working hard with all local traders to bring life back into all of Limavady.  This market builds on Limavady’s legacy as a successful market town and complements the unique shopping experience that Limavady has to offer.  The speciality market brings visitors and locals into Limavady town centre and all businesses benefit from the additional footfall.  There are two additional dates this year – Saturday 20th October and Saturday 1st December and Roe Valley Chamber is proud to be able to support this excellent show case of all that is great about Limavady produce.”
