Galway’s famous bustling market has been trading in Church lane by St Nicholas’ Church in the centre of the city for literally centuries.
You will find hundreds of stalls selling fresh produce and locally produced crafts.
There’s a great variety of food available, Madras curry, Yummy Crepes, Japanese Sushi, and mouth watering handmade chocolates among many others or you can buy the ingredients for a delicious gourmet picnic.
Many people come to the market to chat as well as to shop and it’s a good place to meet the locals and hear local issues discussed.
The market is open Saturdays and Bank Holidays from 8.00am to 6.00pm and Sundays 2.00 to 6.00.
The Christmas Market runs everyday 9am to 6 pm from the 14th to the 24th of December with lots of home made Christmas foodstuffs and a lovely atmosphere with all the decorated stalls lighting with mainly battery powered lights and candles.
