TRALEE foodies enjoyed a treat for the tastebuds over the weekend as some of Kerry's best artisan food producers came together to show off their wares at the annual Manor West Taste of Tralee Food Fair.

The two day event, which was run in association with Taste Kerry and took place in Manor West's main shopping mall on Saturday and Sunday, gave the public an opportunity to sample the enormous variety of quality food that is produced every day in Kerry.

Thousands of visitors attended the fair, which is now in its third year, over the course of the weekend. They were spoiled for choice, enjoying the opportunity to sample and purchase a huge range of locally produced products. From hot to cold, sweet to savoury the fair catered for every preference in true Kerry style.

"I was delighted to see the public coming out in such numbers to support the local food producers," said Manor West Centre Manager Derek Rusk. "This is our third year hosting the Taste of Tralee food fair and it is fair to say that the event is just getting more and more popular. Manor West are delighted to be associated with the Taste Kerry organisation and are happy to help promote the Taste Kerry brand and enabling the producers to develop an additional route to market for their produce."

"Manor West have been very supportive of Taste Kerry in the past and we look forward to working with the management and staff of Manor West every year," said John Harty of Taste Kerry.
