IN THE MARKET for, er, a market?

There are a wide array of farmers markets, flea markets and craft markets taking place around the country over the next week.

Let the browsing commence!

New Market Collective

When: February 4th

Where: The Green Door, Newmarket Square, Dublin 8

The Newmarket Collective brings together an eclectic bunch of Irish traders once a month. The result? A sprawling market where visitors are exposed to the best of Irish design. There will be vinyl, vintage clothing, home decor, art, crafts and food.

Treat your Valentine to one of Paperbear‘s gorgeous pop-up creations, brighten up the gaff with one of Homebird‘s deadly prints, and make a vintage discovery in Shop Vertov.

Sunday sorted.

Mother Jones Flea Market

When: Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10am – 6pm

Where: Thompson House, York Street, Cork City

If you happen to find yourself in Cork City, Mother Jones Flea Market is the perfect place to while away a couple of hours. It’s the type of place where you’re as likely to find old issues of Bunty as you are kitschy portraits of the King and Queen of Thailand. Go forth and find bargains!

Fusion Sundays

When: February 11th, 11am – 5pm

Where: The Green Door Market, Newmarket Square, Dublin 8

Fusion Sundays is a world culture market hosted on the second Sunday of every month. Drop in to peruse handmade products from all over the world and sample some delicious food. We recommend the authentic Venezuelan arepas from Hohoto Bistro.

Midleton Farmers Market

When: Every Saturday, 9am – 1pm

Where: Midleton Town Centre

If you regard yourself as a foodie, consider making the pilgrimage to Midleton Farmer’s Market. Founded by Darina Allen in 2000, it has established itself as one of the country’s leading farmer’s markets. Feast your eyes on gorgeous local produce and fill your basket with fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, jams, bread, cheese, and all sorts of treats.
