Street trading has been a tradition for the last century in Ireland, where people really enjoy the alternative shopping experience because it makes them feel closer to the trader and of course to the product they are looking to purchase.
The street food markets are getting more popular everyday between locals and visitors because they can offer a colourful variety of fresh vegetables and fruits produced by local farmers, but also a diversity of culinary options from all over the world. One of them is the well known on Moore Street, The Liberty Market on Meath Street, and The temple Bar Food Market which has been on for over 30 years.
But not only food leads the market scene in Ireland, There is a huge culture for vintage/second hand furniture, clothes, shoes, decoration, collectible objects and art pieces. Here is when the Flea culture emerged, with the installation of the first Flea market Dublin, where people from all over the Country got to sell, buy, meet, greet and hustle at the same time, with people from all over the world. It’s an interesting, delicate, friendly, smart and personalised way to buy. It was part of the culture of the dubliner for the last 5 years, now after the relocation it will get to expand their culture to a different public.
