Royal Hillsborough Farmers Market is set in the heart of the historic village along The Dark Walk

The popular Royal Hillsborough Farmers Market returns to the historic village for the first market of 2023. Set against the tree lined ‘The Dark Walk’ and Hillsborough 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 locally grown plants and flowers, chocolate, 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 Kin and Folk Fine Treats, Round House Bakery, Tom and Ollie, Castlescreen Farm, Crawfords Rock Seaweed Company, The Oystercatcher and Deli Muru. Hillsborough’s own independent plant nursery, Potter’s Hill Plants and Gracehill Flower Farm from Loughgall will both be in attendance with early spring blooms.

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, Pizza Table, Ballyriff Buffalo, The Curious Farmer and new kid on the block, Wild Child Foods who specialise in flavoursome and nutritious plant-based dishes.
