The Council’s second ‘Taste Mid Ulster’ Market took place in Pomeroy at the weekend, bringing large crowds to the village.

The market, organised by Mid Ulster District Council, took place on Saturday 29 June from 11am-6pm.

Norah Brown MBE; Chef Lauren Shimmon, Tailors House, Ballygawley and Suzie Lee Arbuthnot, winner of the BBC Best Home Cooks and as seen on BBC, RTE, This Morning and Ireland AM, delivered cookery demonstrations across the day, making the most out of all the delicious local produce available.

The market featured over 25 stalls of local food, produce and crafts including Betty’s Ice Cream, Ballyriff Buffalo, Fluffy Meringue, Wild Shore, Lough Neagh Stories and Symphonia Gin, to name only a few.

During the day you were also able to get closer to nature with Wild Walk Bushcraft delivering foraging walks through the forest.

As well as the market, there were also performances from a number of local artists, including popular local artist, Andrea Begley. 
There was lots to keep children entertained too with activities such as facepainting and balloon modelling taking place as well as a variety of walkabout characters to meet and greet.
