English Market, Cork Reviews
Local goods in a nice market setting. Even as tourists you can appreciate the hard-working locals getting their quality produce, meats, and sweets out to the public. There are really nice boutique shops mixed in as well. My boyfriend and I only wished our hotel room had a kitchen so we could have enjoyed a meal with goods bought from this market. Next time we will! It is a must to take a stroll in The English Market at least once to admire the culinary spectacle. You just might walk out of there with something delicious!
We often go there for our fresh produce. The quality is good. Most of the people at the stales are friendly and helpful. There is such a wide variety of things to eat, drink, and take as gifts. The restaurant upstairs really adds to the experience of being in the market. From the restaurant you have a birds eye view of the place. There are also a number of side walkways that often go unnoticed. Pay attention and you could find some little hidden treasures.
One of my favourite places to go in the city, the delicious local produce is great but the atmosphere and the hustle and bustle is priceless. It feels like a true indoor market and that's fun for the senses as you stroll through. Large range of places to eat and buy produce and a generally friendly atmosphere which is icing on the cake.
This is a really fun and unique market to walk around in. As a tourist, I couldn't buy much since it was a lot of meat and items that I wouldn't be able to use during our trip, but it was fun to see. The sausage stand was wonderful for my kids, as they each got a sausage on a stick. The prices and selection and many of the kiosks seemed really reasonable, and I would love to go back and shop here if I had the chance. It's not as large as I originally expected though.
Best place to shop in Cork. Pick and mix for grownups. Fantastic spot to people watch and pick up everything you need for a romantic dinner or fabulous food to impress your friends. Everything from fruit and veg, fresh meat, game meat and fine wines. Also cheapest sandwich in the city from the chicken inn. Or try some hand rolled sushi.. or just people watch. Mind your valuables though thefts have been known to happen from unwatched bags just as any major city.
