Colours and exciting smells come together in this unique Dublin market
Colourful street market with lots of variety
Above and beyond the spirit of high street shopping you’ll find Moore Street Market, a picturesque corner in true Dublin style. Located just past Henry Street, its traditional market atmosphere is what makes it stand out. You won’t find clothes or luxury brands in its street stalls, but instead the fragrance of flowers in the place where locals get their fruit and veg and where the stallholders chat to you with a friendly manner and thick Dublin accents as they serve you. This is one of the oldest food markets in the city, and little by little the international market is creeping in, with a few shops selling foodstuffs of Arabic, African and Asian origins. In the last few years, altering some of the area’s historic buildings to allow further urbanisation has been brought up as a possibility, but social backlash against the idea has kept Moore Street intact for the time being. You can visit the market from Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
