This was a fun hour on a Sunday morning. You’ll find books, old prints and maps, antique china, vintage furniture, jewellery, handcrafts and food. Lots of toys for kids to rummage through too.
There are loads of quirky, odd finds. You can amuse yourself for some time browsing and sifting through the stalls. If it wasn’t for strict customs laws in Australia, I might have left carrying a stuffed meerkat with glasses – see photo
At one point, I somehow ended being temporarily put in charge of a stall while the lady went to get spare change. I tried but sadly I didn't manage to sell anything. May need to work on my sales pitch for next time.

DATES: the fourth Sunday of every month, from 11am on

HOW TO GET THERE: It is currently located at The Digital Hub on Thomas St which is very close to the Guinness Factory. It’s not far from the History Museum or Kilmainham Gaol either so if you are planning on doing any of these things, you can easily swing by here too.

LOCATION CAN CHANGE: For a long time, the market was at Newmarket Square. However, they recently lost this venue so this address is now out of date. The last four markets have been at the Digital Hub but this will probably change soon too. A few stallholders explained that once the weather turns wet and wintry, they’ll have to move from this nice open, outdoor setting.
To check the location just look at their Facebook page before you head out. The information is completely up to date and you can find out any changes to the location.

Now in the Digital Hub, close to the Guinness Brewery and dwarfed by famous tower the market is held on third Sunday of the month. Quirky, fun filled and stuffed with a variety of stuff, to use the technical term. More arty and crafty than the original but still some vintage treasurers, modern clothes and eccentric jewellery. Not great for vinyl, impressive range of food stalls. Children love it. Pet friendly.

LOVE this flea market. We travel all over the world and this is my favorite, however - be sure to check their website or Facebook page before you go. They've recently lost their space and are doing pop-ups until they find a new one. They've been amazing with updates so just check before you go :)

Enjoyable stroll around the stalls on a Sunday afternoon, but the items were either used toys & clothes or expensive furniture & cosmetics. There was a few stalls worth a look would like to see more of these and some more local crafts.

I really enjoyed this flea market and wish I had more time there. I found many unique items and purchased an awesome 2nd generation Brownie for my camera collection. People were friendly and the market was quite well organized. Good job Dublin!

A great delusion. We walked so much to reach it and we only found old used stuff at high prices. Antiquaries are different things from old stuff ready for the waste

I like popping in here when the weather is nice. But lately I come away empty handed. I tend to find better stuff in charity shops. But if you're not allergic to hipsters it's quite nice on a sunny day to have a mooch around.

The last time I was there though the queues for hot food were too long & I walked away hungry rather than stand & wait in a tight line. I'd like to query the presence of dogs in an eating area. I'm a dog owner & I don't bring him in to places with food. I thought this was the law? I'm also not a fan & dog owners letting them meet other dogs in very crowded places when they may not get on & have a few snaps at each other. A bit of common sense wouldn't go astray here people. Just pose with them outside instead.

I like the addition of the Green Door warehouse. There's more space & you can have a proper look at things. I see a reviewer objected to a stall holder not being open to haggling. Surely that's their perogative? It's not compulsory to haggle & I'm not actually a fan of it. I also like that way you can just browse & there's no pressure from the sellers, who are nice & friendly, even in the midst of monsoon type weather!

One thing Dublin is surprisingly weak on is flea and street markets. The Flea Market on the historic Newmarket Square is trying to fill that gap but hasn't quite succeeded..........yet. It is growing and improving all the time and as the number of traders increases so will the market.

As it is, it's a nice place to spend a bit of time particularly on the third Sunday of every month when the theme is Brocante. Close enough to the city centre but sufficiently away from the crazy crowds. You mightn't get that amazing bargain but you will certainly have some fun trying.

The Newmarket area dates back some 400 years and over the last 15 it has been subject to a rather attractive face lift. The flea market is a welcome addition to the stable of other interesting retail options.You will find new and second hand, retro, quirky and household and something for every budget. Depending on the time of year you will also find hot food, drink and sometimes even music.
