Wild Atlantic Food– 28th & 29th  October 2017

The Pavaillion, Lisdoonvarna, Co.Clare

Welcoming hundreds of visitors from all corners of the world The Burren Food Fayre came to a close on Sunday 29th of October with the announcement of the Competition Winners of 2017:

Most Attractive Stall – Copper Pot Artisan Bakery

Best Taste of the Fayre – Copper Pot Artisan Bakery

Burren Bellini – Burren Free Range Pork

The Fayre kicked off on Saturday 28th of October with the screening of the documentary film ‘Atlantic’ followed by an animated Q&A with director Richard O’Donnell; amongst the audience where local fisherman and community groups of county Clare.   The screening raised €270 for the local branch of the RNLI.

On a sunny and fresh Sunday morning a Wild Foraging Walk took off from the Pavilion in Lisdoonvarna with 35 enthusiastic participants guided by the knowledgeable Oonagh O’Dwyer from Wild Kitchen, prior to the official opening at 12 noon by Richard O’Donnell.

At the opening O’Donnell stated “It is great to see community festivals like the Burren Food Fayre celebrating Food Sustainability at is best. My documentary film Atlantic fits perfectly with the ideology of the Food Fayre.  Food is precious and it should be appreciated.  The aim of my film is not to create big political moves but to raise awareness amongst people to start thinking where our food comes from; buying local produce creates a positive chain reaction in our local economy., It is beneficial to our community and our own health. When we buy produce in the big supermarket chains we are only inflating the wealth of those large corporations bringing no benefit at all to any other aspects of our lives. I am delighted to see so many fantastic food producers in the same room showcasing all the wonderful produce that The Burren has to offer.”

The Fayre concluded at 5pm with the announcement of the competition and raffle winners.

The Burren Food Fayre 2018 takes place at the Pavilion in Lisdoonvarna on the 27th & 28th of October 2018
