The return of the Tiny Traders Village finally became a reality as the local market relaunched in a new location after almost a year of setbacks and delays.
A record number of visitors were treated to more than 40 local artists, crafters, food entrepreneurs, and producers demonstrating and selling their wares in a wonderfully transformed Nuns Island Theatre.
The Traders' Village which had last occurred in June 2018 in the Áras na nGael on Dominick Street had its ''highest ever attendance'' according to founder/manager Paul David Murphy who also added that traders and visitors claimed the event had been ''taken to a new level'' with its relocation to the Nuns Island Theatre.
Paraic Breathnach of the Galway Arts Centre, who was instrumental in facilitating the revival of the event, applauded the end product and remarked that he was ''delighted to see such vibrancy in the Nuns Island Theatre and such great use of the space''.
Saturday marked the return of the once regular event after a long and drawn out 10 month period that generated much intrigue and discussion across the city and county.
The Tiny Traders Village will take place every Saturday from 11am to 5pm.
