On Friday 27th August from 9am to 12 Noon, the Mallow Farmers’ Market opened for the first time in its new home in the grounds of St James’s Church, Mallow. Welcoming the market to the church grounds, the Rector, the Reverend Meurig Williams said:
This is a great opportunity for us to be hospitable, not only to the local producers and growers who have stalls in the market, but people from the town and further afield.
Commenting on the environmental significance of farmers’ markets, the Rector said:
At a time when we are conscious of the need to cut down on food miles, I hope the people of Mallow and the surrounding area will support the market and our local growers – and then stay around the town to use other shops and businesses too.
