Not many people know this but the Causeway Speciality Market is a regular, monthly feature on the Coleraine Borough Council’s Events Calendar. I have to admit I had other personal reasons for making the trip – to offer my support to a new friend – Thana from Whoosh Catering who I would not have met were it
not for the growing Open Coffee movement.
Thana’s speciality is home made Thai and Vietnamese food and even though I made it to Coleraine early – she was almost sold out when I got there, but I snapped up a spicy chicken salad, some spring rolls with the most exquisite dip and a thai beef and noodle dish – all were so fresh, spicy (but not too hot) and very very tasty. For more details go to www.eatwhoosh.com (or you can follow Thana on twitter @whooshcatering).
We were also treated to an array of hand made crafts, artists, musicians, faith healers ( at least that’s what I think was going on – the signs had been taken down – if you can shed any light please get in touch!), freshly home made American Cookies – thanks Big Ted!, Asian Curry Sauces from www.currysauceni and much much more.
The next Causeway Speciality Market will take place on Saturday 10th October – go along and sample (and there are plenty of samples) some of the fresh local produce for yourself – and ladies – put that together with some relaxed shopping and perhaps some lunch with some take home Thai Food and you have the day all wrapped up.
