Cork Airport’s new farmer’s market takes off

Wednesday, 14th November, 2018 4:56pm

In a new partnership, Cork Airport is to showcase the very best of Cork’s locally produced food at a special farmer’s market called the Food Republic.

More than three million passengers pass through the airport each year and they will all get the chance to sample some of Cork’s best food products.

Cork Airport in conjunction with Aramark is to provide local food producers with a window to the world, helping to grow Cork’s reputation as Ireland’s centre of excellence for food and to reinforce its place on the map as a superb destination for foodies.

The farmer’s market initiative brings together Cork’s vibrant artisan and local food producers to showcase the very best of food available to all passengers and visitors.

The farmer’s market brings together such delights as baked goodies from the award-winning Hassett’s Bakery, handmade Durras cheese from the beautiful valley of Coomkeen, artisan Ardsallagh Goat’s Cheese from Carrigtwohill and the renowned Carrigaline Cheese.

Kevin Cullinane, Head of Communications DAA said: “Events like our farmer’s market help to provide an insight into the passion, pride and love with which our local artisan food makers produce simple, honest, and delicious foodstuffs.”

Brian Casey, Aramark General Manager, Cork Airport said: “As Cork is often known as the gourmet capital of Ireland, the Food Republic is the embodiment of a commitment to live up to those standards. Insistent on fresh, locally sourced ingredients from local suppliers, there is a wide array of choice for travellers looking to enjoy a meal.”

Aramark Head Chef David Magee added: “We’ve developed a menu that reflects Cork’s position as the gourmet capital of Ireland.”

Mr Magee added: “The quality and provenance is first class and gets a great reaction from Irish and international passengers travelling through the airport for each journey. Our focus on local suppliers is unique and gives passengers a really special dedicated experience.”
