Food Glorious Food

Southern Regional College’s First Year Foundation Degree in International Hospitality & Tourism Management and International Travel & Tourism Management students are hungry for success!

Following on from a very successful event in 2015 and again as part of their Events Operations module the students are organising Newry’s Second Food Festival in the Market in Newry on Friday 22nd April 2016 from 11am to 6pm.

The festival will consist of 4 areas:
• The marketplace featuring local food producers and suppliers – we are looking for the full range of products to be represented – jams, relishes, chutneys, breads, tray-bakes, veg, dairy products, specialty meats, fish, oils, dressings, sauces, confectionary and specialty items.
• A pop-up restaurant area with local restaurants and eateries
• A chef demonstration area
• Live music

Local businesses are bringing a taste of their menus to the heart of Newry – be sure to stop by for lunch, tea, a coffee or snack and even bring some wholesome Northern Ireland produce home to your own kitchen. A range of demonstrations will take place between 12 and 6pm including SRC Catering Students as well as Aine’s Kitchen Cookery School, and live music for everyone to enjoy.

To date the following local businesses are taking part: Café Krem, City Cheese, Crepes 2 Go, Drumnasilla (Unusual Jams, Chutneys, Curds & Marmalades), Flemings Farmhouse Bakery, Harnett’s Oils, Holdens Chocolates, Juice Plus, Long Lane Pantry, Neary Nogs Artisan Chocolate, Price’s Ice-cream, Red Dog Artisan Food, The Gluten Free Patisserie, The Krazi Baker, Passion Preserved, Art Bar Funkel and La Dolce Vita.

The Market has been made available free of charge to stall holders by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council.
