I’m delighted that Sligo has made it into the final of the Foodie Towns competition and I really love to see Sligo win but your help is needed, we need your votes and you can do so here.
If you are wondering why Sligo should win the Foodie Towns competition here are my reasons. We have the best of everything in the way of foods and something to suit all budgets and all tastes. You can have fast food, a meal in one of the many gastro pubs, a leisurely meal in one of the fine dining restaurants or perhaps just a snack and a freshly brewed coffee in one of the friendly town cafes.
Or how about a Homemade Italian Ice-cream from Fabio’s. He always has a wonderful selection of flavours and you’ll be greeted like an old friend. You really will be spoilt for choice at the fine selection of food in Sligo.
We also have some wonderful Farmer’s Markets where you can buy all varieties of local produce. They are so much more than markets they are a social event with the stall holders taking time to chat to their customers. It’s great on a Saturday morning to have a stroll around the markets and know you are buying the freshest quality foods out there.
Sligo also has the fantastic Só Sligo Food and Cultural Festival where the town comes alive with all kinds of foodie events taking place. There is a food trail where you can try tapas sized portions at various venues throughout the town. There are also food demonstrations and even a chance for the kids to try their hands at cooking.
So what more could you ask for? Please give Sligo your vote, it only takes a minute.
