Tis the season to support local produce

Comber market SM Farm

Comber Farmers’ Market celebrates Christmas today (Thursday, December 6), and visitors will have the opportunity to stock up for Christmas with the very finest locally grown and handmade produce.

The award-winning market has become one of the top artisan food events in the country.

All the traders will be jolly and bright with holiday spirit and selling everything required for the perfect Christmas dinner with seasonal fruit and veg, ham and cocktail sausages, Christmas puddings, cranberry sauce and all the trimmings needed to create a sumptuous family feast.

Fresh eggs for egg nog, raw jersey milk and shortbread for Santa, locally made chocolate and fudge for Christmas gifts, Christmas wreaths to hang on your door, cheese, chutneys and tapas for party treats and much much more.

In addition to all this St Mary’s Primary School will be carol singing and there will be a special visit from Santa.

A second special seasonal evening at Comber Farmers’ Market will then take place on Thursday, December 20, from 5-9pm to give visitors another chance to stock up on the very freshest produce for the Christmas period.

Alderman Deborah Girvan, Chair of Comber Farmers’ Market committee, is looking forward to what is an important time of year for local producers: “Christmas truly is a very special time of year to enjoy with friends and family, and is an incredibly busy time for local producers and traders.

“Comber Farmers’ Market provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to support these local businesses and enjoy quality artisan goods.

“I would encourage as many as possible to come along to one of the markets, or both, on the 6th and 20th December and support local this Christmas.”

n The seasonal market can be found in St Mary’s Church Hall car park in Comber Square from 9am to 1pm.
