On-site parking available on all three days.
Free park and ride on Saturday and Sunday from Coleg Sir Gar’s Gelli Aur campus (just a few minutes from Aberglasney – look out for the yellow signs) for when Aberglasney’s car park is full.

Not all stallholders will have card payment facilities, so cash might be handy.
