MAHON POINT FARMERS MARKET

CHARITY TO BENEFIT AS MAHON POINT FARMERS MARKET LINKS ON LINE WITH LOCAL MARKETS.IE

Food connoisseurs of Cork now have access to Ireland's best Farmers Market 24 hours a day, 7 days a week thanks to www.localmarkets.ie.  


For foodies with a passion ­ the website even has links providing up to date information about the news and events taking place at the market. 

To mark the launch of the
Farmers Market online, LocalMarkets.ie will be collecting surplus food from producers and delivering it to St. Vincent de Paul over the Christmas period.  In addition, any customers receiving a delivery can donate non-perishable foods, which will be delivered by LocalMarkets.ie to St. Vincent de Paul.

LocalMarkets.ie is now making it possible for people who can’t get to the market every Thursday, to order their produce from a number of stalls in the Mahon Point market straight to your door. LocalMarkets.ie director, Rory McCann is delighted with the new working relationship because Localmarkets.ie and the Mahon Point Farmers’ Market share similar principles: they aim to connect the producer with the consumer and provide a diverse range of naturally produced foods, while helping to support local farmers and artisan producers by having a direct outlet in which to sell their produce.

The website allows customers to keep that personal contact with their producers by reading their stories online.  The site also has Ireland’s biggest range of artisan and specialty food and drink producers under categories like bakery, cheese, fish and meat to be delivered within 48
hours.

Open every Thursday from 10am to 3pm, Mahon Point Farmers’ Market is in its fifth year of operation.  During this time it has grown to cater for over 50 stalls, with producers from across Cork County selling their fondly grown, produced and sourced goods.  It has gone from strength to strength winning many awards, including the GoodFood Ireland Best Farmer’s Market Award and the Best Farmers¹ Market in Ireland from Bridgestone 2010. 

With musicians regularly taking up residence at the market, it continues to be a firm
favourite of Cork people looking for first-rate food produced locally and a shopping experience which is different from the norm.  Customers can keep informed about upcoming workshops at the community stall and Slow Food and Cork Free Choice events taking place around Cork on the new website.
