Country Markets in Donegal

Country Markets has been a co-operative business for over 60 years in Ireland. It is a national organisation with branch markets in most counties in the country. These indoor markets generally operate one day a week to market the shareholders’ fresh farm, garden and home produce and handcrafts.The markets usually take place in parish centres or community halls. Some go outside for a few days in the summertime, but this is only to promote themselves and let people know they’re there

Country Markets are not to be confused with farmers’ markets, which have mushroomed around the country in recent years. The main difference is that Country Market members don’t make a living from what they sell and their rules state that everything on offer has to have been produced in the area. Country Markets is a cooperative, which means that every member is involved.
