The first Farmers Market in Kerry was founded thirteen years ago in Milltown village on the R563 Castlemaine to Killarney road.

The original idea was initiated by Mary O Riordan a horticulturist with a passion for an ecological and sustainable life style and an avid promoter of eating organic and locally produced food.

With a group of like-minded people the market was opened in the beautiful stone built & listed Kilcolman Church in the summer of 2000.

It very soon became the center for products ranging from locally produced cheese & meat, seasonal organic vegetables, gluten & dairy free deli items, good  quality home baking, award winning vegetarian food, herbal remedies, cosmetics & colourful handicrafts.

From the start there was reliable and professional advice from the stall holders on: nutrition, cooking, gardening, well-being & natural living.

In 2003 The Farmers Market received its first, of many, Bridgestone award.

 Today the recent addition of heating and light renovation work, carried out by the church, has made it comfortable to facilitate regular events such as: live music, chair massage, whole food cooking demonstrations, health consultations and a children’s art table.

There is always a relaxed and friendly atmosphere on the market and between the free food tastings, delicious hot soup, sweet pastries and selection of drinks from The Mad Hatters community tea table this is definitely the place to aim for every Saturday from 10am -2pm. 
A worthy gathering, if you have ever been to our market come again we would love to see you!
