This is probably Cork’s greatest asset – a wonderful Victorian Indoor Market which is the very essence and centrepiece of Cork life, selling a bewildering array of meats, fish, fresh vegetables, fruit and local specialities (e.g. pigs trotters) and International delicacies. It is a vibrant, busy place full of characters and chatter. The old & new somehow all blend effortlessly together – young professionals sip Espressos at stand up stalls while old ladies hunt for the best bargains in local produce. Similarly, you can buy the finest specialities from around the World at the numerous Delicatessens and organic food stalls and their fresh fish is second to none. Local chefs gather at dawn for the finest catch brought in from West Cork that morning.

The building itself has been carefully restored to reveal its Victorian grandeur – cast iron fountains, railings and pillars decorate the huge space which is divided into alley like sections; each with their own atmosphere. The Farm Gate Café is a great meeting place and has a wonderful old fashioned feel, perched as it is above the Main Hall on balconies running round the outside. The English Market has entrances on Princes Street, Patrick Street and the Grand Parade. In 1980 it was destroyed by fire and was refurbished by Cork Corporation to an award-winning design.

Of course the English Market has more to offer then food. Rubbing shoulders with the Butchers are old fashioned market stalls selling budget household items and a range of clothes. The market has loads to offer and it sums up the egalitarianism nature of Cork. It is an absolute must for film makers or TV shows of all types, with an endless list of filming possibilities.

  • Opening Hours: The market is generally open to the public from 8am until 6pm each day except Sunday, but be aware that some stalls may open later and close early.
  • Opening Days: The market is open from Monday through Saturday each week and is closed on Sunday. It is also closed on public holidays; however this is not always the case.
  • The building is owned by Cork City Council but is managed and operated by Irish Estates Management, and it is they whom you should contact initially for permissions. There is a request form to be filled in which is available from them directly or also online here.
