The Taste of Tralee Food Fair returned for another extremely successful weekend to Manor West on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of June. The event organized in conjunction with Taste Kerry which showcases the massive amount of talent and creativity of local producers have gone down a treat with shoppers to the shopping centre and this weekend proved no different. As everybody was out and about enjoying the fabulous weather, they enjoyed sampling the wide range of foods on display over the course of the weekend.
On the busy mall, the local artisan producers had the opportunity to engage with a wider audience and promote their top quality goods. With such a variety of top quality locally produced goods to choose from, visitors to the shopping centre were spoiled for choice with an array of tasty treats to sample and purchase. Tempting delights from Lorge Chocolates and Cupcakes by Dee, fresh breads from O’Donnells bakery to compliment the award winning products from Sásta Sausages proved as popular as ever. Due to the fantastic wide range of food stalls that attend our food fair, shoppers are able to taste new foods and products. Dingle Sushi and Carlo’s Paella were a big hit with shoppers as they enjoyed a bite to eat while out and about.
Radio Kerry were broadcasting their 11-2 show with Francis Jones live from Manor West on Saturday & gave away a number of fantastic spot prizes for some of the stores in Manor West. Of course, it would not be a Food Fair weekend in Manor West without our pals from Kingdom Party Pals to keep the little ones happy, kids’ favorite cartoon characters Mickey and Minnie Mouse as well as Anna, Elsa and Olaf from Frozen were on hand all weekend to keep the kids well entertained which created a fantastic family feel about the whole weekend here at Manor West.
Centre Manager Derek Rusk said: “We’ve had another fantastic weekend here in Manor West for both the producers and customers alike. There is always a great atmosphere around the shopping centre during the Food Fair weekends and we are delighted to be a part of it. Sometimes we do not realize the talent of our local producers and this event gives many a chance to become aware of these local food businesses and to support our local food producers. We are delighted that we can give these producers the opportunity to interact with a wider pool of customers.”
