Thurles Farmers Market is getting better and better

Tipperary Food Producers are currently researching the possibility of farmer market links across the county and will be with us again on August 6.

There was a great response to their first visit last Saturday as Shannon Forrest from Rivesci presented a sample of their products on behalf of the members of the Food Producers group.

The model is the one that Thurles Farmers Market was already using with products such as Ayle Farm Jams, Magner’s Eggs, Apple Farm Juices and Rivesci condiments currently on sale at Thurles Farmers Market.

We are planning a special event for August 6th too – bringing live animals and vintage vehicles to the market on Saturday mornings. Suir Haven Cancer Support Center is our selected recipient and your support is most appreciated.

The Thurles Farmers Market will continue to operate at Greyhound Stadium for the foreseeable future and looks forward to your valued patronage every Saturday morning.

Market customers can take advantage of card payment facilities, so please inquire when visiting the market. There is also ample free parking at Greyhound Stadium.

Tipp Nutty Knitters have a great range of knitwear – beanies, baby cardigans. Point d’Aran also available for your order. Knitters can customize an order for your special request. They are talented and creative and also offer hand poured scented candles and jewelry accessories.

Our merchants offer you a wide range of breads, sponge cakes, éclairs, brioches, apple or rhubarb pies, carrot cakes or simply divine coffee cakes. Orders can be sent out in advance and ready when you arrive. In addition, flowers, vegetables – including super potatoes, fruits, honey, jams, juices, duck or chicken eggs – are also available.

Locally produced and slaughtered meats are also available – chicken, bacon, beef, lamb and pork – puddings and sausages. More turkey or beef burgers! This trader also stocks locally produced milk, butter and two brands of honey.

Some of our merchants will deliver so please ask when you visit. Supporting the local is vital to our economy and our local communities.

If you would like to get involved with the market, please contact 087 270 1689. We look forward to your custom and support at the weekly market at Greyhound Stadium – see you on Saturday July 30 until 12.30pm.
