Bangor City Council have announced that an agreement has been reached with the Bangor Market Company which means the market in Bangor City Centre will continue to operate for a further period of three years, until 2021.

A statement from Bangor City Council read: “Both the City Council and the Market Company are happy to proceed with this arrangement which without doubt enhances the footfall and trade within the City Centre every Friday which is good for the public, traders and local retail outlets which also benefit.

The weekly Friday market on Bangor High Street commenced in 2013 and is popular with both local residents and visitors to the city.

Bangor market manager Emyr Owen said: “The market has definitely got stronger since last Autumn and we’re seeing very good footfall, trade has improved for most traders, at the moment there are over 25 stalls, I managed to keep a good number of stalls standing through the winter months, on average about 17, comparing it to other North Wales markets it was a good result.

“I’m trying to find more artisan stalls mainly in the food sector but this takes time to find the right ones, I would like to put more stalls in middle of the High Street, it then would be without doubt be the best street market in North Wales and beyond.”
