The community market was founded in 2002 following a conference on the theme of “Food we buy”, in response to Darina Allen’s inspirational presentation. The market is set in the peaceful surroundings of the Nano Nagle Centre in the Blackwater valley.
This Market promotes the very important social side of life as well as being a commercial outlet for local producers. Having a cuppa is a great chance to catch up and to make new friends. The Market includes children, who participate both in the stalls and by providing music.
The products available are numerous including local fresh organic vegetables and eggs, fruit and vegetables from small local producers, potatoes and preserves, award winning cheeses, apples and apple juice, bread and baking, flowers and plants, knits and crochet, jewellery and candles, natural soaps and organic essential oils, Irish made skin & body care products, environmentally friendly cleaning products, charity bookstall, fair trade products available at tea and coffee stall.
The market received a Cork Environmental Award in 2009.
Feel free to come and browse. Our prices are competitive, our quality excellent and a warm welcome awaits you.
