This week marks our return to our summer home in Tipperary Park. We are making Thursday an extra special day as we taking part in the LitFest NewWest literary festival! We have seven authors and a book committee joining us at the market so not only will you be able to purchase groceries but you can also pick up a new book or two.

Our farmers will have veggie starts to share with you for your garden. If you are a little behind on your planting here is your chance to catch up!

Make the most of your market shop by preserving the fresh spring produce. We have a few tips and tricks listed for you on extending the uses of greens, radishes and herbs.

This summer we’d love to encourage you to include our farmers market in your weekly meal planning. Below you’ll find a list of our vendors and products and a downloadable shopping list.
