Season 2016 was officially launched with brilliant sunshine at the wonderful Bloom Festival in the Phoenix Park on June Bank Holiday weekend. This spectacular event showcases best Irish expertise and produce. It was delightful to see the many customers enjoy the perfect combination of luscious strawberries and Summer sun. Thank you to the many well wishers who visited the stand in the Fresh Produce Market.
From a local perspective it was a pleasure to feature with the Artisan Food Producers of County Meath at Taste of Boyne Valley at the end of June. This was a special opportunity to present the berries and preserves and join in celebrating the culinary expertise of the Boyne Valley Region. Again on a local level Boyne Rugby Club hosted their first ever Food Fair very successfully on the August Bank Holiday weekend. Clarke’s Fresh Fruit were proud to feature at this notable event and were very well received.
August proved a busy month with Taste of Cavan, Taste of Donegal and the world renowned Tullamore Show. Each event provided a unique experience that was heart warming and encouraging. It was an honour to witness the high regard for the Clarke Brand nationwide and the enjoyment provided with tastings of the flavoursome berries.
Preparations are currently in place to attend one of Ireland’s greatest events, The National Ploughing Championships in Tullamore, County Offaly September 20th – 22nd. See you there!
