Head to Borough Market this weekend for culinary inspiration to celebrate St Patrick’s Day with Taste the Greatness of Northern Ireland, a showcase of the premium food and drink that Northern Ireland has to offer.
On Sunday, March 17, Borough Market will open especially for a free family friendly St Patrick’s Day celebration with food, drink, cookery demos, live entertainment and of course the great produce of Northern Ireland to sample and purchase.
A host of Northern Ireland’s producers will be taking part, selling a wide range of products from meat and seafood, to traditional breads, snacks, sauces and spirits.
There will be a storytelling corner and face painting to keep the children happy, accompanied by displays of traditional Irish dancing, the Borough Market choir and cookery demos from Northern Ireland’s celebrity chef Paula McIntyre, with plenty of recipes to take home for visitors to rustle up a St Patrick’s Day feast.
Darren Henaghan, managing director of borough market said: “Borough Market is a world class food market offering a diverse range of high quality national and international produce – and we’re delighted to welcome guest traders from Northern Ireland to offer our visitors the chance to buy the best food and drink from this award- winning destination.
“St Patrick’s Day has always been celebrated across London, and we want to show just how much more Northern Ireland has to offer in terms of its range of premium produce with real provenance.”
Guest traders from Northern Ireland will set up shop in the glass fronted Market Hall from March 13– 23.
Northern Ireland was awarded the accolade of Best International Food Destination at the prestigious International Travel and Tourism Awards in November last year, firmly cementing its place on the gastronomic world map.
