Killruddery House and Farm, Bray, Co. Wicklow, will play host to a Spring Market on Easter Sunday, April 8th. A great selection of food, growers, producers and craft stalls is promised including well known artisans such as Corleggy Cheese, Malone’s Fruit Farm, Ed Hicks, The Real Olive Company, Little Delights Cakes, Organic Delights, Carraignamuc Cottage Chemical Free Fruit and Vegetable Stall and Kingfisher Tea. A selection of craft stalls will also be present including Celtos Croi prints, Simply Toys, Janice Burns Woodturning Crafts and Veronica Roden Jewellery.
Some of the produce on offer at the 30 stalls will include cakes and Easter treats from Little Delights, Smoked Ham Fillets and Baby Bacon Jam from Ed Hicks Butchers and exotic tea blends from Kingfisher Tea.
The Crepe Box will also be serving delicious sweet and savoury pancakes made from free range eggs sourced locally from Bushy Farm in Delgany. The event commences at 10.30am, concluding at 4pm. The Easter Sunday Market is free, however the admission fee to the garden is €6.50 for adults and free for children under the age of 12.
There is some availability in the two locations where the event will be held – indoors in the former Grain Store and outdoor in the Old Horse Yard. Suki Jobson is the person to contact on 087 1935386. Plans are currently being developed to make this market a monthly event on the first Saturday of each month.
Elsewhere at Killruddery (and also on Easter Sunday), there’s an Easter Egg Hunt planned for kids – and their “kids at heart” parents. The Hunt tends to be one of the most popular events in the local calendar with many families expected to attend. A family ticket for two adults and three children will cost €25 or €10 per child and normal garden entrance at €6.50 per adult. The market will run from 10.30am to 4pm.
It’s Easter Sunday. A lazy Easter Sunday too, thankfully. A late breakfast with some awesome poached duck eggs, an afternoon sleep on the couch and an evening that features a bit of cooking and a DVD. Of course, one can’t forget the Galaxy easter egg chilling in the the freezer for later on.
Shifting is done and dusted, the evenings are coming back and with reading time back on my hands this week, it’s time for the 21st foodie roundup, a selection of ten blog posts from Irish food bloggers this past week that you may have missed.
Hope your Easter Sunday is treating you well!
