Spring has arrived at last and it seems that summer is on its way. What better way to get in the mood than some alfresco shopping and dining?


The award-wining Continental Market returns to Northern Ireland this month with visits to Belfast City Hall from the 27th  – 30th May and the Belfast Titanic Maritime Festival down by the water’s edge at Queen’s Quay from the 28th – 30th May.

Join our traders from across the globe as they serve up a variety of mouth-watering treats. Link up with friends for a get together and give yourselves permission to try and indulge in a range of delicacies. If you’re making a trip down to the quayside, all that sea air is sure to give you a healthy appetite. Enjoy the exquisite flavours from as far away as Germany, Greece, France, Spain, South Africa, and further afield, all reasons enough to give yourself permission to enjoy some guilty pleasures!

Firm favourite with visitors, the traditional German Schwenkegrille will be serving sizzling Bratwurst and Currywurst sausages straight from the charcoal grill.  Our Dutch pancake stall will be serving mouth-watering delicious bite-size pancakes with lashings of butter and sugar, an extravagance native to their homeland. Enjoy the fresh spices of Thai green curry, exotic meats from around the world or sumptuous pastries from our charming French patisserie.

Once you’ve explored the tastes of the world, why not have an amble around the unique gifts and crafts on offer or relax, take some time out, and put up your feet with a coffee.

This year as part of the Year of Food and Drink 2016 celebrations and in partnership with Food NI, the Titanic Maritime Continental Market will be offering even more of a selection of tasty local produce to chose from and enjoy.

And if all that is not reason enough to get down to the water and celebrate the Titanic Maritime Festival, how about a bit of a lounge on a deck chair with the sand between your toes at our city beach, back by popular demand!
