Sixty pitches are marked out each year on the Esplanade and permits issued to traders.  All permits are issued in advance of Folk Week and those without a permit are not allowed to trade.

You will be able to apply from 08:30 Tuesday 3rd April 2018.  All pitches measure 2.5 metres wide by 1.8 metres deep, due to demand we are unable issue permits for double pitches and preference will be given to stall holders booking the complete week. Hours of trading will be 8.00 am to 10.00 pm daily except for Friday 11 August when trading will cease at 7.30 pm.
