Lord Mayor to join the Temple Bar Food Market for its 10th birthday celebrations...

On Saturday September 30th the Lord Mayor, Cllr Vincent Jackson will join the traders of the Temple Bar Food Market in celebrating ten years of trading in the heart of Temple Bar, Dublin's Cultural Quarter.

To mark this milestone in the foodie history of the Capital the hard working market traders are inviting thirty producers from all over the country to join in this special "Harvest Food Festival".

Ed Hick, craft butcher and event organiser says, " I think this is a fantastic development, working closely with Temple Bar Cultural Trust and Dublin City Council to celebrate the tenth birthday of what was a groundbreaking initiative to bring Dublin's consumers closer to their food and food producers".

A full programme of events has been planned, including demonstrations of cheese, coffee and wine tastings, with talks from guest-speakers representing the Slow Food movement and Eurotoques(international chefs).

There will also be music and face-painting for the younger gourmands.

To accommodate the guest traders on the day, Essex St East will be opened to stalls, stretching to the back of the Clarence Hotel.

Gráinne Millar, Head of Cultural Development at Temple Bar Cultural Trust said �This is a hugely important day for the hard working traders of the Temple Bar Food Market. The market has always been and will continue to be one of the unique and strong elements of the cultural make-up of Dublin�s Cultural Quarter�

So if you are a lover of good food, if you have supported the food market over the past ten years or if you are simply curious about the food that you eat then do come along and join this day of food celebration.

Just be sure to bring your appetite!
