Skibbereen Farmers Market
This was the occasion of the 10th Anniversary Farmers Market at Skibbereen in West Cork and to mark the day, there were extra events arranged. Live music, kids treasure hunt, best dressed dog contest (we spared our mutt the indignity), magician and face painting. It was all to be a fun event, but sadly the lovely weather failed to put in an appearance.
Head gear was therefore the order of the day, and there was a variety on show. From the impromptu, and opportunist to the downright snazzy. All were appropriate to the situation but what was clear, that despite the rain, it was still possible to wear a smile.
Oh, and there were still lovely organic cauliflowers, home baked bread and farmhouse cheeses for sale, as usual.
