Thurles Famers Market will continue to hold it’s weekly Market at the Greyhound Stadium (by kind permission) for the foreseeable future.

Thurles Municipal Council was to select a contractor to design the Thurles Market Quarter last month and the estimated completion date for construction is December 2023. In the interim the market intends to conduct a survey of traders, customers and potential customers to help devise a sustainable pathway for the market. Supporting local is vital for our local economy and communities.

If you are interested in becoming involved in the market please contact 087 828 3218 or 085 706 9379. We look forward to your custom and support at the weekly market in the Greyhound Stadium car park on Saturday mornings. Please support local and enjoy the best of local produce for you and your family. Free Car parking in the Greyhound Stadium car park during Thurles Farmers Markets.

Thurles Farmers Market is hosting a very attractive event next Saturday March 26 at the Greyhound Stadium. The Market, trading from 9am to 12.30pm will feature a total of 25 different traders and will also incorporate the Irish Cancer Society Daffodil Day.

In addition every purchase made at the market will earn you a free ticket for our Giveaway.
