Carrick on Shannon Farmers Market - Co Leitrim - Thursdays

Carrick on Shannon Farmers Market - Thursday 10am - 2pm

The Market Yard, Carrick on Shannon, Co Leitrim

This attractive old courtyard is bounded by interesting businesses ranging from an art and craft gallery to a healthfood shop, and several eating places. On Thursdays it is transformed by the arrival of one of the country's best the famers' markets, current recipient of a Farmers' Market Good Practice Standard Certificate and meeting place for some of the best producers and purveyors of local, seasonal and organic foods.

This is the place to buy ultra fresh fish from 'The Donegal Fisherman' or the local potato speciality, boxty, from 'Eileen's Boxty' (made near Mohill), home baking from 'The Fluffy Meringue' - and you'll find as interesting a bunch of foodie people here as you'd meet anywhere, including many featuring elsewhere in this book: Kearns Organic Growers; Monsieur Frank Pasquier, 'The French baker'; Tattie Hoaker organics, Roscommon; Trevor Irvine of Cheese Etc; Declan McCarthy of Irish Organic Meats; Coopershill Venison… and many more
