Al desko lunches are coming back
While the pandemic has basically thrown the Irish culinary industry up like a deck of cards and watched as businesses scrambled to assemble the 52 cards, some things have remained somewhat the same, like food markets. Like clockwork, they open during the summer, and hungry Dubliners flock to them during their lunch hours, rain, shine or summer sleet.
There has been a spate of market reopenings ahead of the May Bank Holiday, the three-day weekend that serves as a marker in the sand for the onset of summer. Getting in just ahead of the coming of summer is the Irish Village Waterways Market, which has reopened on April 28. The market which operates out of Grand Canal Quay will host grub from the likes of Papas Falafel, Bullet Duck and Dumplings, street food from Pinchos and Korean Table.
The organisation behind Irish Village Waterways Market, Irish Village Markets operates Mespil Road Market on Thursdays, Sandyford Village Market on Fridays, Wren’s Nest on Sundays.
You can find the Irish Village Waterways Market in Dublin 2’s Grand Canal Quay from 11:30am – 2pm on Wednesdays, follow them on Instagram for more information.
