The Milk Market is a great place to walk through and just soak in the atmosphere. There are so many stalls and things to see. I bought a crepe from the Creperie for lunch and a cupcake from another..... more »
Had great expectations going here as I had heard a lot about this market and thought it would be as good as the English Market in Cork but it is quite different and actually nothing like it really... more »
Good food, fresh! The steak sandwich is a must and then walk across the court and pick up a bag of fresh fried chips for 3 euros. The toasties at Mary's are amazing. Choice of 90 cheeses on a baguette with a sun dried tomato and garlic spread. Perfect match! The guitarist was very good too!
Awesome spot on a Saturday morning. Great for some fancy lunch bits (olives, bread, cheese) and great around Christmas for presents. Theres a sit down area upstairs where you can look over the whole market.
Fabulous vibrant market and as it was a sunny day when I visited it felt as if I was in the South of France. There are a great collection of stalls and produce and some great food spots within the bustling market.
Lovely spot to spend Saturday morning wandering around, really great around Christmas for handmade gifts too. Lovely seating area upstairs to look out while you have a coffee. Recommend the baklava stand and the stand belonging to the French man who sells pate, cheese, olives, etc. Arrive early to avoid crowds!
An absolutely wonderful experience. Would highly recommend. Delicious food♥️
