hibernia at airfield farmers market
We are delighted to present Hibernia at Airfield. Airfield is a unique 38 acre working farm and gardens in Dundrum on Dublin City’s doorstep. Airfield is helping people to make more informed and better food choices for themselves, their pocket and the planet.
Hibernia is a new Irish market shop concept participating in Airfield Market focused on presenting the very best in sustainably sourced local and international foods. Our Roundstone Bakehouse Irish sourdough is made using time, skill and fermentation to give consumers bread without compromise. Taste it and you will know what great bread really is. Our meats, cheese, charcuterie, chocolate, condiments, fruit and vegetables are sourced from the very best producers raising the bar of what our customers should expect of great sustainable, nutritious, delicious food.
Our team know and love food and have a depth of experience and advice to share with our customers so you can make the very most of your produce with your friends and family.
Since the first Hunter-Gatherers arrived here over 10,000 years ago, hospitality and the sharing of food and knowledge have been trademarks of the Irish culinary landscape. From the earliest Mesolithic feasting sites on our ancient shores, to the ancient rules of hospitality in the time of the High Kings, to today, hospitality has played a central role in the shaping of our world.
Food is about providing nutrition for ourselves, our families and our friends and there is no greater gift than the sharing of what we have with others, no matter how big or small. It is the essence of being human. And the magic of cooking and the transformation of food into delicious meals is one of the greatest gifts of life.
In a market full of often bland uniform foods, Hibernia stands out for taste, for nutrient density, for diversity, for sustainability and for pleasure. We look for what is good in our foods, not what we have taken out of it. Hibernia is a collaboration of food explorers who love and think about food and its central place in our lives.
We are what we eat. Food is fuel for our bodies and our minds. Respect for nature, respect for animals, respect for difference. We are a people business, we look out for experience, for wisdom and the balance that comes when it meets with youth and energy and the breaking of barriers.
The future is in our hands. We all have choices on the path we take and what food choices we make. Hibernia is there to make our contribution to your choices. Enjoy.
