Farmers markets have seen a major revival over the last number of years in Ireland. The quality of produce on offer is a major attraction to the market. However a large part of the attraction is the banter between buyer and seller. The market has an atmosphere and magic all of it’s own.
In the old market buildings which surround the market proper, a wider selection of goods are available, including clothing and books. Weekly markets operate from Friday to Sunday but some outlets open six days a week giving all the more reason to visit.
