It’s one of the oldest farmer’s markets in Ireland.
Now Killavullen Farmers Market is all set to mark its 20th birthday and reopen for 2021 on Saturday, April 17th, taking its traditional fortnightly place in the calendar for the rest of the year.
After an extended hiatus since the last market in December, the stallholders are eager to get back to business, with some new safety measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety.
Thanks to funding provided by the Avondhu Blackwater Partnership, each stallholder will have their own gazebo, ensuring the market can take place outdoors with the required social distancing (no matter what the weather is doing).
The market opens at 10:30am on Saturday, running until 1pm in the grounds of the Nano Nagle Centre, on the main road between Castletownroche and Mallow.
You can fill a bag with locally grown seasonal vegetables, baked goods, Arbutus breads, jams, chutneys and cordials as well as a fine selection of meat, smoked salmon and yoghurts. Also making a return are The Coffee House Fermoy’s Whole Bean and Ground coffees along with their excellent handmade chocolates.
Knitwear, kids toys and wood products are also on offer and at the second-hand bookstore, all books cost 50 cent and donations are also accepted.
