Visit The Argory on Saturday 4 June for the second of this years’ line up of Good Food Markets.

Following the success of their first Market in April, The Argory will once again showcase some of the best local produce that Northern Ireland has to offer in this the Year of Food and Drink.

The historic courtyard will be filled with a number of artisan stalls selling everything from chutneys and jams, homemade cupcakes and fudge, cordials, ice cream, local Dexter beef, waffles, chocolates, cider and home grown produce.

As part of the Year of Food and Drink, June is ‘Love Dairy’ month. With the amount of lush grassland that covers Northern Ireland it’s no wonder that our dairy products are award-winning.

Kicking off the programme at The Argory is Deane Weir, proprietor of Weir’s Organic Raw Milk in Tandragee. Deane will be talking about how the milk is produced and visitors can sample it for themselves and buy some on the day.

The Argory will also play host to a special demonstration from Granny Shaw’s Fudge Factory; watch and learn how they make some of the creamiest fudge in the country. Live cooking demonstrations will also feature on the programme. Neil Bradley, a renowned award winning chef for over 25 years will be demonstrating how to produce tasty and healthy food. Mary Faulkner from Cookstown will also be showcasing the art of traditional bread and butter making. The Argory would like to thank Flo Gas for sponsoring the cooking station for the event.

Live acoustic music will fill the courtyard throughout the afternoon and children can have a go at milking a cow and follow the dairy trail. The grown-ups can also enjoy a tour of the house or see The Argory in a whole new light on a guided estate tour.

The Argory’s Courtyard Coffee Shop will also be open and visitors can enjoy a variety of homemade cakes, scones and paninis.
