Don’t let the name Milk Market fool you. It’s actually not easy to find milk there at all.
In fact, the open air, covered market specializes in artisan foods, fruits and vegetables, meats and seafood, arts and crafts, as well as some vintage items. Each day has a slightly different focus… Friday emphasizes vintage goods, Saturday food, and Sunday anything goes… with Saturday being the big market day.
The historic location was originally the Corn Market in an era when sanctioned trade for hay, butter, cattle, pigs, and potatoes were distributed around the city. Today it’s a mixed market which includes traders with permanent shops surrounding the square and temporary stalls set up both inside and outside the market.
Arrive early for easier driving and parking. Afterwards, head west toward O’Connell Street and Cruise’s Street for some pedestrian-friendly shopping in the City Centre.
