Market Newsletter 21st September 2010
Welcome to this - early! market newsletter for this week. Yes, I know we said that we wouldnt have a newsletter this week due to the family trip to Italy, but as there are a few things that we wanted to let you know about, we decided to do a quick one...
Firstly, thanks to all the well-wishers to the Spud Man, who had an accident last week-end. He is doing ok, although he wont be able to travel to Italy with the rest of the family. Due to his lack of mobility following the accident, he wont be in a position to stock up on his usual fare, so expect his stall to have only spuds, eggs and honey this Saturday. He hopes to be back to normal produce by the following Saturday (although the soft fruit season may be finished by then).
Secondly, we decided that we wouldnt open the Wine Stall next Saturday, so you'll have to source your wine elsewhere for this weekend's consumption - sorry for that, but it was just to awkward to arrange.
We have extended the date for nominations for the Food Hero & Best Product Awards to next Saturday. Nominations in each category to date include:
Food Hero nominations:
Peter Ward, Country Choice in Nenagh
Catherine from Mor Foods
The girls at FromMothersKitchen
Dick and Dave's Pizza boys
Jenny McNally from Temple Bar/Leopardstown Markets
Donal Skehan - Food writer, Blogger and TV chef
Jim Ryan of Ryan's Farm
The Spud Man of Honest2Goodness
And for Best Food Products, these are some of the nominations:
Moonshine Organic Milk
Gannet's Wild Sea Bass
Jim Ryan's Pork Chops
Mor Foods Peri Peri Pickle
Dick and Dave's Pepperoni Pizza
Jenny McNally's mixed leaves
Cachet chocolates, from Phoenix Delites
Mor Foods Sweet & Sour Chilli Jam
... with more to come!
So, please log onto our nomination form, or fill in a form at the market on Saturday and leave at the Pantry!
Otherwise, pretty much business as usual at all the other stalls, including the Pantry and the Cafe as of now (Tuesday).
Planning on having Greek Meatballs as the dish of the day, as well as Carrot and Cumin soup
Hope you get to come along on Saturday - even if I wont be there myself!
