Avoca Ireland - new food market in the Rathcoole store

Avoca is a successful Irish family run business with stores dotted around the country from Wicklow to Galway. The Avoca store in Rathcoole, Co Dublin (just off the N7 and near Citywest) is the nearest one to me and it's one of my favourite places to visit for a special treat or to meet up with family or friends. 

In late 2013 an exciting new food market was added to Avoca's flagship store in Rathcoole. Here's an insight into the new food market and other random things that I love about this store!

Michie Sushi Bar (Michie Sushi has two other restaurants in Dublin).

Lunch deal for €10 and a sushi take-away service. 

As a Tipperary girl I'm delighted to see the well-known James Whelan Butcher Shop from Tipperary who recently wrote his own book along with Katy McGuinness called "The Irish Beef Book".

Rotisserie Cooked Chicken with a sandwich bar (voted best sandwich by LovinDublin).

Fresh fruit and vegetables supporting local Irish producers such as The Happy Pear

Bakery with freshly baked scones, danish pasteries and white/ brown breads. 

Great selection of cakes and buns. On a recent visit I got this custard bun for just over €1 which reminded me of my honeymoon in Lisbon, Portugal. 

You can have something to eat and/ or a coffee in either the self-service Birdcage Cafe or the Egg Cafe. I'd recommend the Egg Cafe for brunch facing the window looking onto Rathcoole's beautiful park. 

Avoca has a decent selection of Japanese ingredients including different types of Irish seaweed packed in a user-friendly manner. They also stock stylish bento boxes. 

Local Irish producers are featured throughout the store including Irish seaweed skin-care and beauty products such as Green Angel and Voya. They also stock organic fake tan!
