The Raceview Mill markets are held in a massive covered heated hall which can hold over 100 traders, a music stage, seated area and still have lots of spill out area.

The market, held on the last Saturday of every month, is the largest food and craft indoor market outside of Belfast St Georges and features live musicians. 

Markets are a great visitor attraction but they are also a major contributor to economic development.

Several traders have started market stalls at Raceview Mill, then have grown to taking a unit here.

Soon, they start to employ part time staff, then full time staff.

Markets create sustainable employment by giving people a route to start selling their wares inexpensively.

They provide small traders, including crafters and food producers, an outlet to trial and to sell their wares.

Supporting local markets has a direct impact on the local economy in a way that buying from a supermarket never can.
