Farmers Market in Skibbereen

THE SKIBBEREEN FARMERS MARKET

The Saturday Farmers Market in Skibbereen town is one of the biggest, one of the best. It resembles a good French market and that comparison was underlined when it was blessed with fine weather this Saturday morning.

There is a great variety of stalls here: fish, herbs, cheese (including Gubbeen), crepes, chocolate, plants, books, stained glass, cakes, jams and preserves and, like France, pullets! And much more!

It is well organised, always space for everyone who wishes to set up a stall, thanks to the hard working Veronica and her fellow committee members.

Frustratingly, couldn’t buy too much this morning as we wouldn’t be home for a few days yet but did take the opportunity to pick up some spelt bread (Tomato Mozzarella) from the Dunmanway Baking Emporium.

But there was no room in the boot for the fresh fish being sold by a pair of lively sisters and certainly none for any of the pullets.

The market goes on my list and I wouldn’t mind making the trip down from the city some Saturday morning. It starts at 9.30am and close around 1.30pm.
