Enjoyed my stroll in the sun down Midleton’s Main Street yesterday as once again the Anuual Midleton Food Festival drew a large crowd, and the sun! All the stalls are now on one side of the street and that makes it easier for the punters, especially those with push-chairs. But, in any case, no one is in a rush; it is all easy and relaxed.
Great to see Harrington Bakers of Youghal coming up with some old favourites on their stand, including a terrific Brack with lots of fruit. Sorry I bought the small one as that had more or less vanished by Saturday night, should have went for the large size. Must try their Tiger Loaf sometime.
There were at least three ice-cream stalls on the stretch and I’m sure they all enjoyed a good day. I certainly enjoyed my cone of Caramel and Fudge from Baldwin’s and indeed it was a delight to meet up and have a short chat with farmer Tom himself.
Made a few more calls as well but only had a couple of hours to spare there. Next year, I’ll just have to book lunch in one of the many good spots in the town and make a day of it.
