Yesterday I trotted along to Queens for a little foodie indulgence as the they hosted an Artisan Market, organised by the university’s own Institute for Global Food Security. Among the tasty delights were delectable macaroon’s by the lovely Eva Paris, some sweet and spicy partnerships by Passion Preserved and not to forget the good old spud, reinvented by the fantastic Mash Direct. On the sample table were oils by Harnetts Oils, one of which I tried was Hemp oil. Now that was different! It had quite a strong flavour, nothing like that I’ve tasted in an oil before but very delicious nonetheless! My friend Jenny was there with Keen keeping the fine people of Belfast stocked in nut butter – she sold out three hours before the end of the day! All in all it was a cracking day, showcasing some wonderful local produce that is completely home grown and made right here in Northern Ireland. Most of these local traders can be found every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at our very own St George’s Market (https://www.facebook.com/StGeorgesMarketBelfast) So get your butts down there and don’t miss out!
