Ballintemple’s newest market & DELI

Locally Sourced × Crafted with Love


The Root of Basil

Basil Market and Deli is Cork’s newest foodie haven, nestled in the centre of Ballintemple village.

Owners, Gareth & Carole Kendellen have many years in the Hospitality & Catering Industry and together they have recruited a team of three fabulous chefs and refined Basil into what it is today.

Together they recruited a team of 9 and have refined Basil into what it is today. Every day Basil brings a little fragrance to the neighbourhood, through a collection of freshly made sandwiches, salads, desserts, catering home-made meals. Their ethos is simple- fresh food from scratch. Using local suppliers, Gareth and his team transform Ireland’s best raw materials into tasty meals for your family to enjoy.
