Hillsborough Farmers Market will bring the very best local, seasonal and artisan food back to The Dark Walk this autumn.

Come join us and support local small businesses in the relaxed, friendly atmosphere that our Hillsborough markets have become known for. There will be over 40 stalls to browse, with farm-to-market and artisan food producers complemented with a considered selection of artisan craft, art and sustainable living products.

The market will be a discovery experience of both established and up and coming food producers and creators. Multi-award-winning names including Ispini Charcuterie, Deli Muru, Ballylisk of Armagh, Lecale Harvest and Tom and Ollie will be in residence, joined by upcoming artisans such as Spontaneous Deuce, Moon Gelato and Kin and Folk. Sustainability in food will be front and centre with regenerative farmers Castlescreen Farm, Seaview Farms and The Curious Farm bringing their heritage meats to the market. The rising interest in organic will be apparent with newcomers such as Microgreenway, Moocha Kombucha and local organics skincare queen, MrsRrganics, also taking part.

By the time you explore the village and browse the market you will be ready for refreshments, but you will not be disappointed with Tribal Burger, Ret Ro’s Grilled Cheese, Crepes 2 Go and The Fancy Fox among others to choose from.

A visit to Hillsborough village is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday. Discover the independent shops and eateries in the village, finishing with a walk in the Forest Park. Hillsborough has something to suit everyone.
