Ballyvaughan Winter Farmer's Market

YESSSSSS
Ballyvaughan Farmer's Market is NOT stopping at the end of October as usual !!!!
This is brilliant news for those of us that use local farmer's markets as our weekly food source, for those things that we don't grow, bake, make or gather ourselves.
The market is to continue through the winter on Saturday mornings from 10am to 2pm, as always.
There is also organic fairtrade tea and coffee for just €1.50, so it's also a glorious cafĂ© too !
Below I have selected a few of the photos I have taken of Ballyvaughan market over the last 3 weeks.
ENJOY !!



This is what it looks like at the end of the day !!!






I love it when people bring all their excess produce to sell - always interesting and blessed with surprise gems...


Nearly sold out !

'Mrs Kelly's Country Fare'



Monk's Veg diversifying for Christmas !!



This is my all time favourite Hot Dog stall !!!!!!

She also supplies hams, pork chops and sausages !

All from their own 11 rare breed piggies each year.

Heaven in a sausage skin !
