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.
