Temple Bar Food Market is heaven for foodies and takes place each Saturday from 10am to 4.30pm at Meeting House Square beneath a shiny new retractable canopy. You’ll find everything from freshly baked bread to organic apples and even an oyster bar. Continuing on to South William Street, get kitted out in cutting-edge fashion from Dublin’s young designers at The Loft Market which is located in, yes- you’ve guessed it, the loft of The Powerscourt Centre. Browse the stalls from 12 – 6pm on Fridays and Sundays and Saturdays from 11am-6pm.
Heading over the north side of the Liffey to Moore Street, don’t miss the larger than life market traders with their battered Silver Cross prams brimming with oranges and giant Toblerones. These ladies are so synonymous with Dublin street life that they were even the subject of a recent photographic exhibition.
