Went along today for a look see and its small but nice. A few photos below and a link to some video for anyone thinking of dropping along tomorrow.
Video is up on YouTube
Is this in the "village", do you have to pay to enter as normal or is it free during the market?
Outside Blarney Woollen Mills in the actual village.
That looks the same as the one we get in Limerick once a year.
Man, they charge some prices for some of the stuff!!
One of the guys with the olives, you tell him "Just a few" and he loads them in purposely and you are left then with the option of accepting them (At some f*cking price - circa €15 a big scoop) or telling him to take some off. I told him take some off this year in the Limerick one and he was all pissed off!
They are based in Ireland and go around to festivals etc. Prices are not too bad.
On my salary they are a little more expensive than "Not too bad"
The little cakes they sell are gorgeous but each one costs about €2 a go. Thats just one example
The one in Bunratty was not as expensive as far as I could see.
You always pay a premium for these kind of markets so you just have to be very picky especially these days!
i.mo. overpriced and over here, i have seen quite a number on my wanderings, they are all the same waste of time and money.
Plus what constitutes a french market? A couple french guys selling olives? Ya those little buns in the limerick one were lovely.. we paid 13 quid for 6
I fart in your general direction.
Thanks, hopefully I'll get a rub out there later today.
This is like the Thai Massage thread all over again
I've come to the conclusion that the French Marketeers are ripping us off and charging ridiculous prices based on the novelty factor involved.
- I've half a mind to go to France in my Hiace, set up a stall and sell Kilmeaden Cheese, Tesco Buns etc, Denny Sausages etc. in my own Irish Market at 500% the going rate - I'll have to sound proof the Van so they don't hear me ripping the packaging off every morning.
I've also heard a few stories about how they are pig ignorant to their Customers, and have personally found the Stall Holders at the last one I was at totally obnoxious.
And boy do you stink!! Phewww!!
That link? Was it meant to show me something?
That the French Market originated in New Orleans and that it has nothing to do with french people selling you buns for €13, but rather that a French Market is just a collection of market stalls selling different things. As in, the one in Bunratty should have a good deal of variety.
