12 January 2013 - 24 December 2013
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 cookies 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 local artisans and hear local issues discussed. The market is open Saturdays and Bank Holidays from 8am to 6pm and Sundays 12 noon to 6pm. The Christmas Market runs every day from 9am to 6pm between the 14 & 24 December with lots of homemade Christmas foodstuffs and a lovely atmosphere with all the decorated stalls lit with mainly battery powered lights and candles.
