It was with much fanfare that the Ballyneety Innovation Hub and astroturf pitch officially opened in October 2019 on the grounds of the Ballyneety Golf Club. Indeed, the community facilities developed by the community for the community was a welcome initiative for the local area. When Covid-19 restrictions came into place the committee discussed ways of bringing the local community together in a safe manner while stimulating the local economy. This resulted in the setting up of the Ballyneety Outdoor Farmers Market. The response to this initiative is incredible, with lots of stall holders already in business from home. They were delighted to be able to provide a platform to showcase their wonderful products. The market is proud to feature many local producers ranging from Food, Arts and Crafts to Hot Food, Artisan Coffee, Creperie and even Fresh Pizza.

A spokesperson said, “We were pleased as per level 3 Government guidelines Outdoor Markets are considered essential services, meaning that our Ballyneety Outdoor Farmers Market went ahead on Sunday, October 19. 

It was an astounding success and patrons came in droves, the vendors had no way of predicting the demand, they will double up on their produce for the next market.”

They received lots of positive feedback, comments such as ‘great community spirit’, ‘it was a lovely occasion and a great buzz about the place’, ‘it was so enjoyable and a brilliant way for the community to get together’ and ‘well done to the committee and volunteers who made it run so safely and smoothly’.

The second market will be held on Sunday, November 15 followed by a Christmas Market on Sunday, December 20
