Comber Farmers’ Market has teamed up with NI Food Tours to bring people to Comber to sample and taste a variety of different foods which are available in and around the town on Thursday 5 May 2016. The coach tour will leave Ards Visitor Information Centre, 31 Regent Street, Newtownards at 10.00am, travel to Comber to visit Comber Farmer’s Market followed by morning tea or coffee, home baked scones and cakes in St Mary’s Church Hall. After a brief walk across the Square to Indie Fude Deli, guests will be treated to a cheese demonstration by Michael Thompson who makes his Young Buck hand crafted blue cheeses in Newtownards.
