The new shipping container-style market, Ffos Caerffili, has finally opened its doors as part of the first stage of the Caerphilly Town 2035 Placemaking Plan. With its name derived from the Welsh word for moat, “Ffos,” the market aims to draw in tourists visiting the nearby Caerphilly Castle from beyond the borough.

Ffos Caerffili, funded and supported by the Welsh Government’s Transforming Towns initiative and the European Regional Development Fund, is a brand-new community-focused market and events venue showcasing local produce, goods and services, and is a vibrant focal point for the town.

A recent Google review exclaimed “Just what Caerphilly needed to bring the town centre back to life. Brilliant independent traders. Amazing food. So glad it’s finally open! Well worth a visit.”

As well as residents and visitors, this venue will serve as an exciting opportunity for local businesses and traders. Amongst the traders are Two Shot Social, Lock Up Bottle Shop, Joe’s Plant Place, Circular Studio and Bab Haus.

It’s the perfect opportunity for businesses and traders to test out the demand for their products in the Caerphilly area by occupying one of the containers and moving to a bigger location in the town later if needed. The rental rate for the pop-up shops is also discounted.

From the birth of Ffos Caerffili and the regeneration of Pentrebane Street to an 80-bed hotel, providing much-needed, high-quality accommodation, the wide-ranging plans for Caerphilly are ambitious and aim to bring a transformative change to the town.
