Meet Karen and Mick
Karen started the first Cottage Market in her home village of Ladysbridge, Co. Cork in June 2014. Motivated by the positive impact it had on her local community she set about telling anyone that would listen the importance of putting ‘homemade, homegrown and handcrafted’ back in the heart of communities.
Luckily Mick, founder of GIY, listened and even more importantly agreed, so they joined forces to create The GIY Cottage Market. It’s like companion planting for good ideas and great intentions!
