You will find excellent quality meat, from husband & wife team, Sean & Melissa Murphy and crisp farm fresh vegetables. And lots more too including delicious home baking, homemade seasonal preserves, free range eggs and handmade pate. 

You will also find an interesting selection of crafts and some new stalls too!  And of course a trip to the market would not be complete without that cuppa and delicious gluten free cake provided by Keith and Dylan in ‘The Market Cafe’. They also offer mini Irish brekkie, crispy bacon with waffles and their chicken rocket and pesto bap is truly memorable!  Do drop in…we’d love to see you and your friends on Saturday mornings.
