Looking for something to do on a Saturday? Whether you are local or passing through along the Wild Atlantic Way this market is a must. Nestled under Benbulben the Rathcormac Food & Craft Market is a bustling hive of activity. There is something here for everyone young and old, local or visitor. Here are some of the many stalls that you could visit.
Here you will find the most delicious homemade goodies you have ever tasted! There is a huge variety of goodies here; homemade marmalades and chutneys, soda bread of every variety – cinnamon, mixed seed, rosemary and black pepper, mixed herb, poppy seed, garlic, brown, white, basil pesto and more! There are also some sweet treats to be found. My favourites are the smokey bacon soda bread, the lemon cake and it is not possible to go past here without having some potato bread! Be sure to get one heated with butter to nibble on as you stroll around having a look and enjoy the atmosphere.
Gills Happy Hats
A fitting name as the hats themselves are so fabulous it’s impossible not to smile, not to mention the friendly company and chats while picking out your favourite. There is definitely something for everyone here with a range of styles, colours and cool creations.
Stop and say hello for some guilt free treats! Paleo, vegetarian, gluten and dairy free treats that are so delicious if you are like me you will do a second loop of the stalls and go back for more. Delicious chocolate bars, coconut macaroons, ginger cookies, energy bars and more await you. My favourites were the chocolate bars and ginger cookies, mum was loving the coconut macaroons.
These are just a few favourites from the day for me but there are also many more fabulous stands and shops to see. Colm Brennan – Wood Turner, hand felted pieces from Jonecari, amazing clocks by Clooneen Woodcraft, silk painted wonders by rrsilk designs, Looney Creations’ fabulous designs, Tanis Gordon Smith’s fabulous art work, pure raw honey, jewellery, baked goodies, fresh vegetables, plants, antiques, pottery, glass work and much more.
