Thousands of visitors flock to "The Friday Variety Market" each week due to the sheer quality and choice available. The market is known as the top retail fish market in Ireland, due to the 23 quality fish stalls that it is home to.

Saturday is "City Food and Garden" Day, and your taste buds will not fail to be aroused by the extensive range of both local and world foods, ranging from Irish beef, pork and venison to treats from France, Germany and the Caribbean.

Handmade arts and crafts, as well as plants and flowers, are also on display.

There are local entertainers playing live music, to keep bargain hunters entertained, also creating the perfect Saturday morning atmosphere to while away the time sipping a coffee, watching the world go by.
The Sunday Market, which is held from 10am-4pm is a relatively new addition to St Georges Market.
