East Cork is home to one of the very first Irish Farmers Markets to bring the new food ethos of slow food back to the people of Ireland. These markets have been set up to provide an outlet for farmers and small food producers, dedicated to bringing local seasonal produce to the consumers, who are now seeking this kind of food. These markets do not sell bric-a brac, they just sell local organic food to local people. Farmers Markets benefit the environment by encouraging sustainable agriculture and encouraging the consumers to use only seasonal produce.
