Unique Food & Craft Market Opens in Kilmallock this Saturday

On Saturday 1st July, a new and exciting food and craft market will open in Kilmallock for the first time. The new monthly market will be a place where people can come together in their own locality, to buy and sell homegrown, homemade and handcrafted produce. All around the locality, bakers, makers and growers are busy preparing their produce for the market. The ethos of the market is to encourage people to ‘have a go’ at running a stall, bringing their skills and talents to the community. The emphasis is on fun, and creating an enjoyable day out for everyone. Visitors to the market can look forward to stalls with everything from homegrown salad, to crochet, to fresh cut flowers.

There will also be a community stall each month, which will be given free of charge to a local community group so that they can sign up new members and let people know about their activities.

An integral part of the market will be the ‘Saturday relaxation corner’ where market goers can relax over a cup of tea and a slice of cake, with some gentle music playing. There will also be a kids’ colouring book area where children can have some fun while their parents browse.

The Cottage Market Kilmallock will be open on Saturday 1st July from 11am- 2.30pm

Twenty new cottage markets are opening across Ireland this year, as a result of the ‘Cottage Market’ initiative unveiled by GIY, and supported by Ulster Bank, and The Ireland Funds
