farmersí market in Cahir is continuing to do well. Along with organic beef, lamb, chicken and pork, all sold by the farmers who produce them, there is now a fantastic range of fish sourced by Pat Hartley.
Pat is a former restaurant owner and chef, and therefore, as well as getting the best of fresh fish, you will also get a recipe, and perhaps some of the sauces that he sells from his stall too. And, if that is not enough, Pat also has Bridgestone-award-winning fish pies for sale.
As always, there are fresh vegetables and lovely baked products for sale at the market too. Take the time to visit on a Saturday between 9am and 1pm. Cahir farmersí market is open every Saturday.
We are just about out of apples as I write, so the range that we have in our farm-shop will be a little bit smaller for a while.
New to the farm-shop are Ann Keatingís wonderful Bay Lough cheeses from Clogheen. The Keating family has been making this highly acclaimed cheese with milk from their own herd for quite a few years now, and styles that are available include natural, oak smoked and garlic & herb.
We do of course have apple juice, apple jelly, and strawberry and plum jams for sale. We also have a fresh batch of cider vinegar (if fresh is the correct word for a product that takes more than two years to ferment).
Finally, for those who like cider in the summertime, we have Willie Rostís brew. Fermented in Co. Clare, and sold as Johnny Jump Up, this is a medium-sweet cider that will appeal to many.
