Innovative 'Baby Bay Market' comes to Sligo

BabyBayMarket was officially opened by Model and proud mum Sarah McGovern. Helping Sarah is her 10 month old son Baby Jude.

IT'S a unique venture aimed at battling the recession and catering for a baby boom at the same time.

'Baby Bay Market' is coming to Sligo for the first time.

The ' brainchild' of Mandy O'Rorke – whose husband Jonathan hails originally from Chapel Street – it provides an opportunity for parents to make some cash by selling on baby items they no longer need.

Parents of a new baby also get the chance to make savings by buying second- hand quality goods.

The first market outside Dublin, Meath and Kildare, takes place in the Clarion Hotel on January 27th.

There will also be some local businesses selling baby- related products and services on the day.

Stalls cost €20 and are available to book online at

A clothes rail can also be hired for €5. There will also be colouring and face painting for the kids.

The market will run from 11am to 2pm. Admission is €3, with €1 donated directly to Barnardos Children's Charity.

Mandy said: "Part of the reason I chose Sligo as our first market outside Leinster is because I know it so well and have lots of family and friends here."
