LETTERKENNY ARTISAN MARKET
The Artisan Market takes place in Letterkenny each Saturday between 10am and 3pm and is certainly worth a trip.
It's a great place to while away an hour or two, wandering between stalls of local produce and local crafts, enjoy delicious hot food and coffee and homemade cakes.
There’s something for everyone.
Grab a coffee from ‘Calista’ on the way in and wander round the stalls sampling on some and taking in the delicious aromas on another. There is an extensive meats stall and a farm produce stall with organically grown vegetables from Ballyholey Farm. There’s goats cheese and gluten free cupcakes and pancakes too, which although I didn’t try, look fantastic. If you are looking for wheatgrass then you can buy the wheatgrass or take a short cut and buy frozen shots of wheatgrass. You can even buy flavoured kefir drinks and vinegars.
Local crafts are varied and offer a great selection of both gifts for family and friends and treats for yourself too. There’s ‘That Small Change’ where you can buy rings, cufflinks, golf ball markers and so on all made from Irish coins. Kate, the designer there also makes gifts from wood too. There are artists with art works and homemade cards, and homemade candles which make great table centres and gifts. There’s jewellery and a small selection of home interior furnishing too.
There is a seating area where you can sit and enjoy some of the foods available. I tried Effie B’s jerk chicken as I have never tried jerk chicken before and I can report it was delicious. I also tried her jollof rice and spicy fried rice too, I preferred the jollof, my husband the spicy fried rice and if you want it spiced up a notch just ask Effie B to add more spice and she will.
You can buy homemade soups and pancakes too. The chocolate pancakes seemed to be a big hit with the kids (and speaking of kids, there’s a play area for them with toys and sofas). There are homemade cakes and buns including gluten free cakes.
