The Crafty Market - Dublin

A new and exciting art and crafts market, The Crafty Market, has opened up in the Dublin Food Co-Op building, in Newmarket Square, Dublin.

On the first Sunday of each month this market will feature 35 vendors, selling a great range of original art's and crafts. "There is a wide selection of handicrafts and artwork at the market, ranging from paintings to home wares, jewellery to baby clothes, hats to handbags. There is something for everyone, young or old, and it is the ideal place to pick up an original handmade gift for a special occasion. Face-painting for kids, live music and a tarot card reader all add to the fun and ensure it will be a great day out for the whole family".

Definitely a fun day out, but what we love about The Crafty Market, is that the vendors will change on a regular basis, to ensure a different shopping experience each time you visit. This is great idea, not only will it encourage people to return each month to browse, but it gives different artists and designers the opportunity to exhibit their work. Something that can be quite daunting, not only is it hard to find a stall, you usually have to buy into it on a long term basis.

And there is extras: free parking outside the door, wheelchair access, vegetarian cafe, food stalls,organic and Fair trade, courtesy of the

Well done to the organisers, for brightening up our Sunday's!

The next market is on Sunday 3 May from 11am to 5 pm
