    market

    This handsome market is housed in a 19th century building with wonderful wrought-iron gates, has over 230 stalls, ranging from zips to shark meat. It's actually the oldest covered market in Ireland.

    A variety market on Friday (6am-1pm) is a mixture of secondhand and cheap clothes, books, antiques, fruit and vegetables and fish.

    The market in full swing

    The Markets area of Belfast used to have many different markets, including a pig market and a potato market. St Georges still has it's traditional fish, fruit and veg market every Friday (along with an assortment of other household items) and every Saturday there is a Farmer's Market. At the Farmer's Market you can buy locally grown produce, including ostrich and venison, and homebaked goods. There are also plants for sale.

    In the run up to Christmas, there are several Craft Fairs. Each year these fairs get better and better and are an excellent outlet for buying local and Irish made products for gifts or special treats for yourself. There are people demonstrating their crafts such as ironmongers and woodworkers. There are also beautiful knits and hand sewn items. Admission is sometimes free and sometimes GBP2 which includes a cup of tea. There is even a kiddies table so the youngsters can be occupied. I am always impressed with the quality of the crafts that are on offer.
