In recent years farmers or food markets have become more popular around Ireland and Dublin has seen its fair share of new places to buy artisan food and local produce. Here are just a few to whet your appetite.
Temple Bar Food Market

Right across the road from our city centre campus, the Temple Bar Food Market is perfect for catching up with friends for a chat and chew. This colourful and very popular market has everything olives and olive oils to freshly baked bread, local cheeses and Irish honey. Why not meet for lunch here before catching a movie in the Irish Film Institute just next door.
Dún Laoghaire CoCo Market
Sundays (11am-4pm) | The LexIcon Library & The People’s Park, Dún Laoghaire
Nobody ever needs an excuse to jump on the DART to this beautiful seaside town but now you have a new one. Dún Laoghaire CoCo Market is located not in one but places and both do a bustling trade. The LexIcon Library is where you’ll find all the food you need to keep you going for the day. So why not come out early for breakfast, walk the pier or have a swim and go back to the market for an internationally inspired lunch. After that, you can stroll over to the nearby People’s Park and browse through book stalls and local craft stalls.
Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays (11am-5:30pm) | 19a Main Street, Blackrock
This must be one of Dublin’s oldest markets and it is packed with antique stores and food stalls with tastes from all over the world. Take a wander through the narrow lanes and into hidden shops to uncover treasures and rarities before sitting down to realax at one of the many fine food stalls.
Moore Street Market
Monday-Saturday (10am-4pm) | Off Henry Street, D1
Moore Street is famous for its market and an integral part of Dublin culture. While it might not look like much, the street itself is a colourful mix of Old Dublin mixed with newer shops selling more ‘technical’ equipment. Traders here sell everything from flowers and fruit to novelty knitted hats. Don’t be afriad to haggle but be prepared to lose.
