Dublin’s Gift #4: Temple Bar Market

Temple bar may be the home of pubs, italian restaurants, and many tourist traps, but here is a “tourist trap” that is totally WORTH the money spent.

Every Saturday, Meeting House Square in Temple Bar is transformed into a bustling square filled with enticing smells and vibrant colors.

The variety of foods/produce on sale at the the Temple Bar market is outstanding!

Smack dab in the middle there is a organic vegetable/fruit/produce stand which is quite moderately priced, (delicious!), where people can carefully pick out great vegetables for their meals for the week-your food is only as good as the fresh ingredients you use ;)

Crepes, fresh olives, delectable pastries & cheeses, the list goes on and on…

Succulent Beef Burgers? The Burger Stand is rated “best burger in town” by gourmet magazines.

Hot Dogs? The local butcher has a stand making GREAT hot dogs

Vegetarian?-There’s a vegetarian food stall that sells the BEST Panzarotti ever!

Raw Oysters with white wine and brown bed? Knock em back in!!!

My personal fav is the stand from the food store “gallic Kitchen” where the slabs of quiches are such a good buy for 6.50. the lady who sells the quiches is SO friendly-for the past two years she was almost my aunt, feeding me every Saturday with her melt-in-her-mouth quiche. (try the SALMON quiche, it’s PERFECT.)

There is a perfect little dessert stand owned by a cute Spanish lady…banana bread, toblerone cake, nicaraguan three milk cake….(OMG if you will ever try ANYTHING from her, the three milk cake is to DIE FOR)
My friend Dan with the dessert-lady!!

Temple Bar Market is open every Saturday, from morning till about 5pm. It is HONESTLY not just for tourists; but for everyone who enjoys good food.
