Thurles' unique Farmers Market is going really strong
Tipperary Food Producers are currently doing some research into the possibility of links between Farmers Markets across the county and will be with us again on August 6.
There was a great response to their first visit last Saturday as Shannon Forrest from Rivesci presented a sample of their products on behalf of members of the Food Producers group.
The model is one that Thurles Farmers Market had already been using with goods such as Ayle Farm Jams, Magner’s Eggs, the Apple Farm Juices and Rivesci condiments presently on sale at Thurles Farmers Market.
We are planning a special event for August 6th more – bringing some live animals and vintage vehicles to the Market on Saturday morning. Suir Haven Cancer Support Centre is our selected beneficiary and your support is most appreciated.
