Croom Community Development Association (CCDA) is committed to the Circular Economy, to this end CCDA works hard to promote “shop local”.  In 2022 Croom hosted a community car boot sale.  This was an opportunity for people locally to buy and sell and ensure the longevity of goods.  The sale was a great success. On the day there were several artists and crafters taking the opportunity to sell their products.

From this event, it was felt that there was an opportunity to promote the work of local artists, food producers and those who create gifts and unique items. Croom Community Development Association is hosting a Christmas Market to support these artisan food producers, artists, and crafters. Croom Christmas Market will take place on Sunday, November 27th, from 12 noon to 4 pm at Croom Sports Hall on Bridge Street, Croom VW35 PT04.
The Christmas Market will have a range of exhibitors with Christmas gift ideas, decorations, and unique cards. “He Cooks a Lot”, Keith Piggott will have an assortment of his luxury Christmas Cookies, lebkuchen, white and cranberry and dark chocolate and orange cookies Clair Jones of Lough Gur pottery will be marketing a selection of her ceramics, Clair’s dishes and platters with bright colours and designs make great Christmas presents and birthday gifts. Clair’s Christmas decoration commemorating Limerick’s “Three in a row” is sure to be a huge seller. Sally Redmore Sea Glass creates sustainable items. Sally beachcombs along the west coast for glass, marbles, and driftwood to create unique gifts, decorations and cards. Tara O’Gorman will be attending the event with her unique Ogham stone framed pictures, capturing the ancient script and translated in to Irish and English, a great gift for someone wanting a taste of home. There will be more than thirty local artisans displaying their skills and artistry.


Hot Chocolate will be available, just the thing for a winter’s day! CCDA will have a tea and coffee stall and there will be lots of sweet treats. Croom’s Christmas Market will take place at Croom Sports Hall, so indoors out of the elements, the Market will be a great opportunity to acquire the unique Christmas gift that you are seeking, and you will be supporting a local small business.
