English Market

Interesting
A vast indoor market that was established on Grand Parade in 1610: at that time the avenue was a canal and was only filled in the 19C. Ships used to moor at the entrance to unload their goods. In front of the stalls with their pre-cut meats laid out, you will be struck by the smells of the brightly coloured foods. The local specialities: drisheen (black pudding) and crúibini (pigs' trotters). The aisles lead to an atrium, which is overlooked by the famous Farm Gate Café.
