The popular Hillsborough Farmers Market returns for an autumn series of markets in the historic village of Hillsborough, Co Down.
Set against the tree lined ‘The Dark Walk’ and Fort it makes for a lovely day out, especially when combined with a browse of the independent shops and eateries in the village.
The market features over 40 stalls of the finest local and seasonal farm-to-market produce and artisan food from across Northern Ireland for you to discover.
Expect to find regeneratively farmed and outdoor reared heritage meats, fruit and vegetables, breads, cakes, Irish cheeses, jams, chutneys and pickles, olives, pestos and tapenades, charcuterie, oysters and smoked salmon, to plants and flowers, chocolate, ice cream, coffee, street food and more besides!
A small but considered selection of designer craft, art, organic skincare and sustainable living products can also be found.
Stalls will feature established food market names such as Tom and Ollie, Castlescreen Farm, Ballylisk of Armagh, Ispini Charcuterie and Deli Muru. They will be joined by the myriad of newcomers to the Northern Ireland food scene, including Spontaneous Deuce, Moon Gelato, Simply Devine Cakes and Bakes, Kin and Folk, Ard Mhacha Gourmet Mushrooms among others. Hillsborough’s own independent plant nursery, Potter’s Hill Plants will be at Hillsborough Farmers Market for the first time.
By the time you explore the village and browse the market you will be ready for refreshments, but you will not be disappointed with Tribal Burger, Ret Ro’s Grilled Cheese, The Fancy Fox among others to choose from.
For updates on who is trading at each market, follow the Visit Lisburn Castlereagh social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and also on their website.
