There can be between 40 and 120 stallholders at the market on any given week. This directory is a ‘work in progress’.
Not every trader is at the market every Saturday, so if you are making a trip especially to see a particular stallholder it is always best to contact them first.
The details in this directory have been provided by the stallholders themselves for Skibbereen Farmers’ Market (E&OE).
