Always a gem

It's a lovely market, okay the stalls may not be very different or out there but they do have some lovely produce. The cheese stands and the Indian curry stall is brilliant.

So the market is at its best on a Saturday - Friday and Sunday are much quieter days with lots more space to sit and enjoy the static food and coffee stalls. You'll need to be up and out early on the Saturday to see the best of limericks hard working food and craft producers products, the market is open... More

The Milk Market certainly has history towards it, but there is nothing too special about it. Not very large, just your normal fruit, vegetable and hot food stalls.

The market has a little bit of everything. The hot food was great and there was no shortage of fresh produce to choose from. There is a variety of other things for sale such as tools and homemade baskets when I was there as well. A must do when in Limerick City.

I've been coming to the Marley for years and it is by far the best thing about limerick. You've got to be in early to see all the delights that are quickly snapped up and to soak up the atmosphere. If you'r e planning a visit to limerick get should be on your list for a Saturday. The place keeps... More

Apart from the array of produce on offer from small producers selling fruit & veg, meat, fish, charcuterie, cheeses etc, there's plenty of baked goods and opportunities to just graze... Try the breakfast rolls or the seafood from Rene Cusack, the crepes, a curry from Green Saffron, a pork roll or the array of baked goods. Failing that just grab... More

After 6 years visiting Limerick I finally arrived at The Milk Market on the right day at the right time!! Amazing offerings here. Foods, baked goods, boutique shops and stalls. Will be sure to go from now on Saturdays and Sundays 8 - 12.

Limerick is famous for its Milk Market but it is an all weather food and variety market, extremely diversified! It's been in Cornmarket Row since 1852. It's just open in Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Traders sell fresh, organic and local goods.

Milk market magic! I enjoyed a visit at the weekend. Bustling with locals and shoppers, the market had a good variety of things for sale. Plenty of places sold coffee and hot chocolates to ward off the cold. I thoroughly enjoyed my crepe there and it was delicious and filling. Such a great selection of jams and ideas for gifts.

Thank Janhen14
