Markets @ SOLAS

SOLAS is happy to announce that the Markets are back and are kicking off with a double market weekend.

The ‘Weekly Farmers Market’ is on Saturday Feb 11 from 10-2pm and a ‘Valentine’s Day Craft Market’ will take place on Sunday February 12 from 11am-4pm.

David Maher of SOLAS explains: “We have signed up a number of new high quality food producers who will be joining us from our first market of the new year on Saturday 11 February including a number of stalls which will be offering hot market food, meat, bread, fresh local vegetables and confectionary.

“Moo-Cow milk will be back from our first market so we are really excited for the season ahead.”

The Craft market has been timed to make it the perfect date for the romantics out there to spend a fun Sunday strolling the markets and picking out the ideal gift.

David Maher said: “Our custom built and covered ‘Market Street’ provides just the perfect setting for markets ensuring a great customer experience regardless of the weather.”
