It has been a long hiatus for Killavullen Farmers Market but we are delighted to announce that it will return this Saturday 13th of June from 10.30am to 1pm. We will be back then every second Saturday at the same times!
One of the oldest farmers markets in Ireland, located in the grounds of the Nano Nagle Birthplace, on the main road between Castletownroche and Mallow with plenty of parking. The market is continually evolving and continues to surprise each week! From humble beginnings our market has grown and it is amazing to look back at all the years we have put down with many ups and downs. We coped and adapted to each of those and will do the same in this “new normal”.
As part of this new way of doing business we have spent a lot of time working out how the market will operate, consulting with the local HSE inspector and other relevant authorities. We have also observed closely what other markets have experienced to help us put together a safe and welcoming market.
There will be one entrance and one exit with hand sanitizer available to be used on the way in and out. We will not be having any stalls in the tunnel and will make use of the large outdoor spaces we have for the time being. All stallholders with taking their own precautions and will be spread out around the grassy area. Food producers will have their produce in packaging where possible as per guidelines.
For our friends visiting the market we ask you to follow public health guidance and of course if you are feeling unwell or have been in close contact with anyone who has symptoms recently, please stay away! When purchasing please try to have correct change and if someone else is buy at a stall please queue at least 2m from them and other people. There is plenty of parking around Nano Nagle.
We are figuring out as we go how the market will work and may make some more changes to how we operate so please be patient. If you see something you think we need to improve or adjust please let one of the stallholders know.
All regular stallholders will be there as usual, along with a number of seasonal producers. You will find plenty of the finest seasonal veg, fruit and flowers, as well as the staples that you have been missing. There is also a wide selection of unique gifts, all from local producers.
Regular stallholders have a range of products from locally grown vegetables all in season, handcrafted baked goods, breads, jams, chutneys and cordials. There is a fine selection of smoked salmon, fresh raw milk and yogurts.
