Galway's famous bustling market has been trading in Church Lane by St Nicholas' Church in the centre of Galway city, County Galway, for centuries. Visitors will find hundreds of stalls selling fresh produce and locally produced crafts. There's a great variety of food available, Madras curry, yummy crepes, Japanese Sushi and mouth watering handmade chocolates among many others or ingredients for a delicious gourmet picnic.
Many people come to Galway Farmers Market to chat as well as to shop and it's a good place to meet the locals and hear local issues discussed. The market is open Saturdays and bank holidays from 8.30am-6.00pm and Sundays 2pm-6pm.
The Christmas Market runs everyday 9am-6pm from the 14th to the 24th of December with lots of home made Christmas foodstuffs and a lovely atmosphere with all the decorated stalls lit with lights and candles.
