Far­m­gate was estab­lished when MarĂłg O’Brien opened her restau­rant and coun­try store in Midle­ton, Co. Cork in 1984. Ten years later MarĂłg’s sis­ter Kay joined her, and so the CafĂ© in the Eng­lish Mar­ket in Cork city cen­tre was cre­ated. Far­m­gate CafĂ© is located in the heart of Ireland’s old­est and most his­toric food mar­ket, with an indus­tri­ous excit­ing view over­look­ing stalls and fel­low traders. The CafĂ©, which in 2019 cel­e­brated 25 years at the Eng­lish Mar­ket, embraces much of what is unique and tra­di­tional to Cork, along with new influ­ences in this dynamic mul­ti­cul­tural food mar­ket and port city.
