EAT CORK GRAND PARADE MARKET
Had a quick walk through the Eat Cork Grand Parade Market this afternoon. Quick is the word as there were hardly twenty stalls there and only a fraction of those were local producers. Hard to blame the producers though as they are out at markets every day of the week, where they can be supported locally, and they deserve their day for rest.
The two crepe stands though and similar hot food stands were doing okay, as people coming back from the mini-marathon availed of the chance to restore energy levels. Bought myself some Turkish delight and that was about it.
Ended up then in TKMaxx where I spent a few minutes shopping and much more than a few minutes queuing. Bought a cook book on the cheap and a few utensils. By the way, if you are on the lookout for amaretto biscuits – I’m told they are hard to get – then TK has loads of them on their food stand.
- Did you hear the news from Skibbereen that that lovely restaurant Over the Moon closed its doors last night. Shame to see the lights go down on such a class eatery.
