Marese Tuohy from Bodyke adds a gentle presence to the market. She is best known for selling wonderfully eclectic bunches of flowers that never fail to put a smile on customers faces and to lift their spirits.
Marese also sells, vegetables, herbs and vegetable plants, together with seasonal fruit. At the farmers market since it began, Marese has a keen sense of consumer trends. “I have noticed a big increase in demand for vegetable plants over the last few years. People have really begun to get into growing their own veg.”
Marese enjoys advising customers who are developing a new found interest in vegetable growing. Like so many of her fellow stall-holders, Marese intensively works a modest plot of less than half an acre.
