It’s a truly wonderful shopping experience for many at the local farmers markets and the markets themselves are the perfect way to showcase local crafts and produce that you can’t get anywhere else. As you walk through the market you’ll find your senses heightened from the tantalizing smells, the chattering sounds and the colourful stalls that line the path.

Be sure to spend time browsing through the wonderful stalls which are often packed with produce such as fresh, organic and locally grown fruit and vegetables, freshly caught fish from Galway Bay, artisan jams, cheeses, home bakes and more. You’ll also find yourself in awe and appreciative of the time, effort and work gone into the enchanting art & crafts on show and you may even pick up a collectors item at the stalls offering a treasure-trove of bric-a-brac.

Don’t be afraid to spark up a conversation with the friendly traders and learn more about their trade and skills too. Come rain or shine, these local traders bring their wares and set up their stalls to provide you with an extraordinary social and shopping experience, so don’t miss out!
