Dublin Flea Market

Held on the last Sunday of every month, the Dublin Flea is one of the city’s best-loved markets. Since 2008, it has been feeding market-goers’ appetites, both literally and figuratively, with an indoor dining area full of stands stocking delicious falafel, Greek food, fresh coffee and more alongside vendors selling clothing, art, bric-a-brac and pretty much anything else you could ever want or need. Housed inside the food co-op on Newmarket Square, this market also has an outdoor courtyard area that is extremely pleasant to hang out it in, weather permitting.

Ha’penny Vintage & Craft Market

A stone’s throw away from the iconic Ha’penny Bridge, The Grand Social bar and venue hosts a well-attended vintage and craft market every Saturday afternoon (12pm-6pm), offering designer and vintage clothes, antique furniture, vinyl records, books and a selection of artworks and crafts by local designers. This friendly indoor market has a relaxed atmosphere, and shoppers are invited to enjoy a pint while perusing the various stalls if so inclined. Several local vintage shops from the surrounding area also rent tables here.

Temple Bar Food Market

The Food Market in Temple Bar is often described as a foodie’s paradise. Held every Saturday from 10am to 4.30pm in Meeting House Square – a space that also accommodates cinema screenings, festivals and outdoor performances – here you will find local producers selling seasonal organic vegetables, truly free-range eggs, cured meats and baked goods, both healthy and less so. Sheridan’s Cheesemongers are also in regular attendance, selling some of the best cheese to be found anywhere in Ireland. A retractable canopy diligently protects both sellers and shoppers from rain.

The Bernard Shaw Flea Market

This weekly flea market takes place on Saturdays in The Bernard Shaw pub and its adjoining beer garden. Visitors can sample cocktails and craft beers while they soak up the market vibes and snag some bargains – and as an added bonus, brunch is available from participating places like Coffee to Get Her and The Big Blue Bus, which specialises in pizza. The amazing Dublin Doughnut Co doughnuts – quite possibly the best doughnuts in the country – can be purchased here too.
