Carmarthenshire Markets planning Welsh Week activities


A host of activities are planned at Carmarthenshire markets to celebrate Welsh Week.
To mark the event, which starts on Saturday, February 25, the markets will be decked out in Welsh flags.
There will be free local produce tasting, arts and crafts making for children and Welsh music playing to entertain the crowds.
On St David’s Day, Wednesday, March 1, shoppers will be treated to free Cawl tasting during the morning in Carmarthen and Llanelli.
Scarlets players will also make appearances in Llanelli and visitors will be entertained by Cor Curiad singing outside The Teapot Café.
Various activities are taking place across Carmarthen town with the annual Gwyl Dewi Parade starting from Carmarthen Park at 10am on Saturday.
The indoor market has everything you need to celebrate St David’s Day – from traditional Welsh outfits for school children to other Welsh-themed accessories.
And by supporting your local traders you can also pick up good quality, local ingredients at affordable prices – from cheeses, breads, Welshcakes and barabrith to fresh vegetables and meats to make your own Cawl.
It’s also a great opportunity to get your Mother’s Day gifts and cards, accessories, make up and much more to treat your mams ahead of March 26.
There will also be free parking in the Llanelli on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 23, 24 and 25 and in Carmarthen on Saturday, February 25.
Carmarthenshire County Council’s executive board member responsible for the markets, Cllr David Jenkins, said: “Come along and see what the market has to offer and get some great recipe ideas using ingredients bought in the market. By doing so you will be supporting some great independent businesses."
