Killavullen Farmers' Market
Is a community market set up in 2002 following a conference held on the "Food we buy", inspired by Darina Allen who was a guest speaker. The market is set in the peaceful surroundings of the Nano Nagle Centre in the Blackwater valley. Beautiful walks around the Centre and by the river are a must.
Although the market is a commercial outlet for local producers, it has a very important social aspect to it. Children are encouraged to participate in stalls as well as providing music. Having the cuppa is a great chance to catch up with friends.
The stalls available are numerous such as fresh organic vegetables and eggs, potatoes and preserves, award winning cheeses, apples and apple juice, bread and baking, savoury quiches and soups, flowers and plants, knits and crochet, jewellery and candles, natural soaps and organic essential oils, environmentally friendly cleaning products, personalised poetry and greeting cards,charity bookstall,recycled paper products and fair trade products available at tea and coffee stall.The market received a
Cork Environmental Forum Award in 2009.
Seasonal products such as hampers and Christmas wreaths are also for sale.
