Calling all budding chefs

The Young Producers Market takes place on Saturday 24th October has been a highlight of the Savour Kilkenny Food Festival for a number of years. This was the first young producers’ market in Ireland and its success has been remarkable. After attending a food hygiene presentation (on 16th October), enterprising young adults will use their creativity and flair to bake, display and sell their keenly priced produce.

It is open to all school children aged 11 – 17. Tables and stands will be provided, they just need to bring their products for sale, plates and tablecloths. The participation fee is €5 per person. All income from sales on the day is pocketed by the enterprising participants!

Customer Feedback

I received fantastic assistance today at the customer service desk. The assistant even helped me enter a draw. The Halloween Party was very enjoyable. The kids had a fantastic time, very child friendly.
Great atmosphere in MDJ today. Lots of activities for the kids to enjoy on a miserable day. Great help from the lady on the front desk. Needed some help as we are in Kilkenny for just the weekend.
MacDonagh Shopping Centre is probably one of the cleanest Centres I’ve shopped in, toilets are always immaculate.
We were in Kilkenny for the long weekend and popped into MacDonagh Junction for a bite of lunch on our way to Kilkenny Castle. We were just about to leave when the kids entertainment kicked off. Many thanks to whoever organised the entertainment – it really made our weekend. We usually head to Spain for the Easter break but I think the smallies will vote for Kilkenny (or rather MacDonagh Junction) again next year.
