Pat Purcell Papers
1928 Vegetable Market

Source:  Mr Michael Purcell

1928 Vegetable Market.

Nationalist and Leinster Times.

May 1928. (Carlow notes.)

A number of pupils of Mr MacKenzie, who for twenty years has been Horticulture Instructor for the County, will supply the Vegetable Market to be opened on Saturday next.

This speaks sufficiently for the excellence of the products.

The hours are to be from 9am to 12noon.

The want of this market has been felt in Carlow for very many years, and now that one is established - thanks to the efforts of the Carlow Urban District Council, I hope that people will not be slow to avail of this splendid opportunity of purchasing fresh and varied vegetables at the minimum price.

This is Carlow's chance, and I hope it will be largely availed of.
