  English Market, Cork
by evaanna

The market has existed on this site since 1610 but the present building dates back to 1786. Refurbished after a fire in 1980, it is a great place for the world gourmets, who will find here anything they can dream of, from exotic foreign foods, spices and luxury items to such Irish specialities as crubeen (pig's foot), tripe and drisheen, already prepared and not to be missed if you want to get to know the local cuisine. To get a bird's eye view of this special place, you can visit their 'Farmgate Restaurant' on the first floor.

What to pay: The prices can be a little higher than in the supermarkets or the local shops, but you are paying for the privilege of shopping here.

Address: Grand Parade
Directions: The market is accessible from Grand Parade, Patrick's Street, Oliver Plunkett Street and Princes Street
Theme: Food and Drink
