TO SELL AT THE MARKET YOU NEED A CASUAL TRADING LICENCE

There are two separate yearly licences at the moment. They run from the beginning of June and applications can be made until 15th April to the Department of Environment City Hall, Galway.
You can download the application forms below.

You will need to state the type of goods you are selling, the type of stall you have and the space required and give your RSI number. If you want to sell any type of food you will need separate documentation fron the Western Health board.

You can always try 'fly pitching' if you can find a space but you run the risk of being asked to move by a warden but there are lots of regular fly pitchers and the majority of traders (but not all) welcome their presence as adding life and variety to the market.

 

Licence for Saturdays and Christmas eve only : Traditional traders get priority and any few remaining places are given by a lottery system. Its very hard to get a Saturday licence. There is a huge waiting list for Saturday licences

Licence for Galway arts Festival, Sundays and Christmas week only (excluding Christmas Eve) : Traditional traders get priority, remaining places are given by a lottery system. New licences are given out each year.

The cost for each licence at present is 65 per metre, you can apply for as many metres as you like but are more likely to get a licence for one or two metres.
Negotiations are under way with Galway City council to extend the area of the market or possibly the number of trading days and also the introduction of 'day licences' subject to space, so watch this space......
