On Thursday, October 6th the popular monthly Comber Farmers’ Market is joining the ‘Harvest’ month celebrations as part of the NI Year of Food and Drink, taking the opportunity to showcase the very essence of the artisan event.

Everything on offer Comber Farmers’ Market is connected to the land, the products available at the market are all reliant on local yield.

The meat from Forthill Farm, Kennedy Bacon and Broughgammon Farm is grass fed; the wheat used for baking by the Krazi Baker, Farm House Treats, Mange Tout Deli and Go Yeast comes from Northern Ireland flour mills and the fruit and vegetables from Horner’s Farm Shop and Helen’s Bay Walled Garden are harvested from local soil.

Locally grown winter bedding plants and perennials will be available from McCutcheon Landscapes and the market producer of the month, the Uncommon Garden Company.

With free range eggs, fresh fish, chutneys and jams, chocolate and so much more on offer the market gives visitors the perfect chance to support local producers and to really taste the difference.

So whether you are a market regular or if you have never been before, you are invited and encouraged to head down to St Mary’s Church car park of Comber Square and support local producers at Comber Farmers’ Market.
