In the capital this September and looking for a food-filled day out? This year’s National Organic Food Fair is to take place on Sunday, 14th September in Marlay Park, 10.30am to 4.30pm.

This public event is free for all and is a collaboration between the Organic Trust and the Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association, and is supported by the  Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine.

The organic festival will house lots of outdoor stalls and marquees showcasing the best in organic Irish products, from soups, yogurts, burgers, cider and apple syrups.

Apart from the food attraction, the fair will have many other different things on offer for families such as face painters, balloon makers and a pet farm.
