Held every Thursday from 10am to 3pm. One of the biggest and the best weekday markets is Mahon Point Farmer's Market – a firm favourite and long-time fixture on the city scene.
Proudly local, very individual and a little eccentric, Divas is exactly what you wouldn’t expect to find in the tiny, tucked-away village of Ballinspittle. A half-hour drive from the city and famous for its own baked breads and cakes, lunches and brunches, at Divas you are also very close to the famous surfing beach at Garretstown. It’s a small dining room, so you may have to wait for a table on busy weekends. The eggs really do come from the farm next door.
Twin brothers Padraig and Adrian Hyde say they like to talk about beer as much as brew it. Almost. At their medal-winning Munster Brewery, the brothers welcome all parties, big and small, to the port town of Youghal, once home to the Elizabethan explorer, adventurer and beer-lover Sir Walter Raleigh.
With over 45 regular stalls serving up everything from burritos to locally produced artisan meats, cheeses and veg, this busy market in the grounds of a shopping centre in the suburb of Wilton is a great mid-week option - especially if you want to stock up before heading to West Cork.
