Midleton Country Market your Zero Waste Shop

By Seamus Whelehan


The glorious taste of late summer produce and local crafts at Midleton Country Market offers a unique shopping experience.
The widespread notion that zero waste is expensive is not the case here.
Eating organic food grown or raised locally doesn’t cost the earth either.
Operating an eco-friendly ethos for decades, the Friday Market is attracting people in their droves in search of locally sourced products.
The late summer harvest of tomatoes dripping with flavour and fresh, just out of the ground carrots and potatoes, are some of the vegetables that can be found at Market Green Shopping Centre every Friday from 9:30am - 2:00pm.
Homemade breads, scones, cakes and pastries, gluten free scones, cakes, bread, lasagnes, shepherds pies, soups, potatoes cakes and eggs, and preserves including jams, chutney, lemon curd, marmalade and honey are routinely found here.
For the non-foodies there are fresh cut flowers, plants, arts and crafts, handmade candles, all at pocket friendly prices.
Why not grab a coffee as you stroll around checking out the handmade soaps, crochet and knitting, Celtic birth tree framed pictures, hand turned bowls, candle sticks and lamp stands, and homemade jewellery.
