Day 141: The Farmers Market in Dingle
On the day we drove out of Dingle we happened upon a local farmer's market. A weekly Saturday event, the market was strangely like farmer's markets in the USA. Besides some fresh vegetables, there were tables of home made jams, fresh baked goods, some olives and the odd craft. A bunch of those carrots which I bought had 24 enormous carrots. Perhaps if the Irish had tried to grow carrots instead of potatoes they might not have lost 4 million peoplein the 1850's.
