The English Market
One of the delights of Irish life is the town food and produce markets, and none is more glorious than the world-renowned covered English Market in the heart of Cork City. Taking its name from the Protestant corporation that created it in 1788 (as opposed to the later Irish market), the English Market has been at the heart of life in the city ever since. Surviving fire and several attempts to redevelop the ornate home of this culinary treasure, the market continues to thrive. Home to long-established family businesses as well as to a new generation of artisan producers, The English Market showcases everything from traditional delicacies of tripe, drisheen, salted ling and crubeens to some of the finest meats and cheeses in the country – its glorious vaulted space is an essential destination for foodies, culture vultures and those just happy to enjoy the banter at one of the innumerable cafes.
