Heritage Foods at Comber Market
As part of the NI Year of Food and Drink, March is the month that celebrates our food heritage and traditions. Find them all at this month’s market on Thursday 3 March! We have soda bread, wheaten farls, potato bread, and apple cakes made on the griddle by the Krazi Baker. There’s grass fed beef, dry cure bacon, kid goat meat and venison. From the dairy there’s free range eggs and handmade cheeses. There’s jams, chutneys and preserved fruit. There’s soup vegetables, turnips, cabbages, carrots, parsnips and of course our Comber potatoes. There’s indigenous plants and shrubs to plant in your garden or pot on in your greenhouse.
Come and meet our local food producers and hear their story on how they rear, grow, bake and make traditional Northern Ireland food using farming and production traditions that have been handed down through the generations.
