I am now managing to get out and about again after my recent stay in hospital and on Sunday we went up to the Farmers Market at the Bandstand in Cliftonville. The weather was set fair and we were blessed with beautiful sunshine but I did think it must be cold there in the winter. I mentioned this to Chris Barkaway on his Butchers stall and he said the wind comes straight from Siberia and is a lazy wind it dont go round you it goes straight through you. But Sunday was bright sunshine and he was doing a brisk trade with both his fresh meat and award winning pies and sausages. Chris is the fifth generation of familly butchers A.J. Barkaway I wrote about his butchers shop a few weeks back, it is so nice to see the quality of goods available at the farmers market.
