Saturday morning sees locals and tourists alike flock to the Midleton Farmers' Market, adjacent to Hurley's SuperValu at Townspark, Midleton. Midleton Farmers' Market has the honour of being Ireland's original farmers' market. Established by noted local culinary expert, Darina Allen (of Ballymaloe fame) and local farmers to create an outlet for their produce, Midleton Farmers' Market has gone from strength to strength and now boasts a bulging cornucopia of the finest produce on offer. With live music each Saturday, Midleton Farmers' Market has a feel-good atmosphere, where visitors can pick up some tasty treats, get themselves comfy on the grassy verges nearby (weather permitting) and soak up the ambience. Canine companions are welcome. Midleton Farmers' Market takes place each Saturday from 9am to 1pm.
