What a savage Sunday we just had, wish we had more days like that during the summer. After my Sunday morning coffee in Sam&Dan's Billy and myself headed for Grand Parade to find a full food market set up. It was cool to see the Grand Parade since it was done up being used for something. We were in walking around before the crowds found the place, we stoped at one stall and had a box of roasted potatoes with sausage...amazing! I'm drooling right now.
It would be nice to see them do more stuff like this more often, the Grand Parade is such a great space now. I picked up some savage home page jam from McBride&Flynn, they are based down in Kinsale and I have to say the jam was unreal, homemade jam just has so much more flavour. I also picked up some Banana bread and Goats cheese from a few other stalls ,mmmm making me hungry writing this now.
I never seem to see these events advertised any where, I always just happen to stumple along and find them. Where do they advertise these days? is it in the paper or radio? Where ever it is I never seem to ever see any press about the events which is a shame because I would love to go to more of them. You can easily forget that there is such great foods made right here in Ireland, I'm always saying how good food in other countries is,but do you know what, I think the west of Ireland is right up there. (most of the food stalls seemed to be from down that direction.)
The guy in McBrides was saying that there is going to be another market on Patrick St this coming weekend, so if you have nothing on and want some savage food I would recommend getting in to Cork over the weekend.
