This Sunday the 14th of September sees the return of the National Organic Food Fair to Dublin’s Marlay Park, where some of Ireland’s most passionate organic food lovers will share their ideas on the benefits of eating organic.

Throughout the day, experts in organic production, food writing, brand building and cooking will be sharing their enthusiasm through free public talks and cookery demonstrations between 10.30am and 4.30pm on Sunday.

The guest chef for this year’s event is Clodagh McKenna, who will be giving a cookery demonstration using organic ingredients from 12.15pm to 1.45pm and another between 2.35pm and 4pm.

Other speakers include Pat Lalor from Kilbeggan Farm, Julie Calder Potts from Highbank Orchard and food writer Kitty Scully. These public talks and demos will be held in the demonstration marquee at Marlay Park (first come first seated).

Also taking place as part of the food fair will be market stalls and tastings, as well as face-painting and balloon-making for kids.

This event is entirely free and is open to the public. It’s 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.
