Smithfield Multicultural Market

While out eating last weekend I saw this little flyer distributed for a new multicultural market at Smithfield, which is due to be launched officially this Sunday 22 June.

Smithfield Indoor Outdoor Multicultural Market

I was a tad bemused to read the flyer claiming this to be the first multicultural market in Dublin. What about the market in Temple Bar (every Saturday)? Or Dun Laoghaire (every Sunday)? From what I gather of those markets, they are already quite multicultural, with stalls selling Lebanese, Chinese, Indian, Mexican food etc. Definitely options aplenty to suit the taste of many, and for those who like trying something new in small doses.

Still, this market will be at Smithfield not just a day per week like the others. Instead, they run from Friday to Sunday, from 10am to 4pm – 3 days to pick up any of your favourite farmers’ market goodies.

    I was there on Sunday. The market was not too bad, but there was not much of a market vibe going on, probably due to the fact the stalls were all inside and in three separate rooms. The weather wasn’t great either so that might have dampened spirits a bit. Hopefully things will pick up though, it’s a great location for a market. It’s good to see more markets about Dublin in general.

    I didn’t manage to make it myself last weekend (friends visiting and concert to attend) but yeah, the morning was awful with the strong wind and rainy weather. I hope it’ll pick up too, and I’m looking forward to checking it out in a couple of weeks.

    Thanks for the map, it’s cool!
