English Market - Review

A haven for food lovers, the English Market is located on the Grand Parade. Flooded with fresh vegetables, meats, cheeses and wines, it is only expected that the restaurants in the market will serve scrumptious dishes that will make you want to stay here forever. Most of the produce is locally grown and is known for its quality and taste.

Start your day here with a hearty breakfast to experience the best or Ireland’s Flavors. The place has its own charm as the place was opened in 1862 and the place is a worship place for foodies ever since.

English Market, Cork Reviews

  • Cool little spot. You kinda have to go if you’re in cork though. Good if you’re trying to buy local goods. Hence the name market. My wife said it reminded her a lot of Pikes place in Seattle. It was clean and nice to just walk in

  • A great place to shop if you are looking for local quality goods. They have just about everything here as far as food goes. It is an historic building that is both beautiful and dingy at the same time -- kind of like a lot of the rest of Cork city. lol I would highly recommend the English market for meats, veggies, coffee, bread, spices, and tasty treats to go. My goodness is way overpriced for what they are selling, but I am rather fond of most of the rest of the stalls, and the people who inhabit them!

  • Oh what a wonderful experience! This market reminded me of Pike’s Place Market in Seattle and the Grand Market in L.A. with its stalls full of fresh meats, breads and various goods. We especially enjoyed coffee, pastry and a chat with the local barista and her friend. Before leaving we purchased freshly made gourmet sandwiches and had them for lunch later. Superb!!

  • Located in Cork City just of St. Patrick’s Street, the home of good local food products with delicious smells, tastes and hospitality. Come here and try delicious olives, cheeses, pastries, fresh organic fruits and vegetables. There is no place alike. With the latest extension of the old capital cinema, the English market will soon be even more incredible.

  • A must go to Cork experience.Fantastic quality & range of produce,from fresh fish,meat,poultry,eggs,cheese,fruit n veg,chocolate,spices,cooking ingredients,wine,champagne,cakes,breads.... the list goes on.Quick bites,coffees n teas.A very good restaurant/cafe overlooking the fountain area.Lots to see & explore,fit for royalty & the man & woman from the streets of Cork & the world.
