We had a great Market on Easter Sunday. There was lots of enthusiasm from the stall holders and great support from the local community. It’s great to see the Horseyard, which is so full of character, becoming alive again after so many years of slumber. After the huge success of the market on Easter Sunday we are going to have one on the first Saturday of the month until the end of the season in October so the next one is the 5th May . It’s a showcase for the artisan, craft and creative community of Bray, Wicklow and beyond with more than 30 stalls located indoors and outdoors at the former Horseyard on the estate. Indeed, many of the food and craft stalls who participated at Easter will return including Corleggy Cheese, Malone’s Fruit Farm, Little Delights, Wild Irish Patês, Kingfisher Tea, Simply Toys, Veronica Roden Jewellery, The Real Olive Company and Carrigamuc Cottage Chemical Free vegetables. Some confirmed new additions to the market include Hamburger Marys, YUM, Silverdaze, Ponchokids, Moonwave Nursery , Bookaholic and Vintage Kids. The hugely popular Crepe Box will also be serving delicious sweet and savoury pancakes made from free range eggs sourced locally from Bushy Farm in Delgany. There’s plenty of room so we can accommodate a wide array of market stalls. We were going to have some nice Killruddery ewe-lambs for sale in the Easter Market but they were too jumpy and kept escaping so we put them back out in the field. Hopefully we can make a better pen for them for this time.
The event commences at 10am, concluding at 4pm. The Farm Market is free, however the admission fee to the garden is €6.50 for adults and free for children under the age of 12. Elsewhere at Killruddery on Saturday, 5th May 2012 early risers can attend a Dawn Chorus walk led by bird expert Eanna O’Sullivan. A Teddy Bear’s Picnic is also planned for kids and their favourite soft toys and dolls on Sunday, 6th May 2012.
