Food doesn’t get more local than this.
Cork Rooftop Farm is about to open a brand new stall in The English Market.
The booming urban farm business, run by Brian McCarthy, is taking over the large stall previously occupied by Tim O’Sullivan Meats in the centre of the busy market.
The team is already hard at work turning the former butcher’s block into a counter, where customers will also find microgreens for sale and a selection of wholefoods.
A selection of plants will be available at one side of the stall, with the Cork Rooftop Farm’s delicious selection of chemical-free, locally grown fruit and vegetables arranged to the front.
All produce is grown on a rooftop above the city on Cork’s Coal Quay and in a market garden in Laharn.

“First day of clearing out the new stall at The English Market down and a fair bit of progress made,” said Brian in an Instagram update.
“Ready for the few big bits of fridges and stainless steel tools to go in the morning and deep clean then ready to come in a fit out and decorate.”
All going to plan, the new location should be open by October. We can’t wait to swing by for the veggie shop.
