John Hosford would like you all to know about the next farmers' market to be held at his thriving garden centre. I know a good few garden centre owners who have just about had enough, and are struggling to stay in business, but in 2007 I've read about/heard about/noticed Hosford's in all kinds of unexpected places. It's a place to go, not just a place to buy plants. John's making the kind of difference a small business needs to make.
Get on down this Sunday, 2nd December, between 12 noon and 5.30pm. There'll be plenty of stalls with a seasonal flair, local produce, crafts, baking &c.
Hosfords are on the main Bandon-Clonakilty (N71) road - five miles west of Bandon and twenty-four miles from Cork city, signposted also off the main Bandon-Bantry R586 road from Murragh and Baxter's Bridge.
"The Blue Geranium Cafe" is open Sundays 12noon to5.00pm, lunches are served 12.30-2.30pm with afternoon tea being served 2.30-5.00pm Weekday hours:Tuesday- Saturday 10am to 5.00 pm
