Galway's famous bustling street market has been trading in Church lane by St Nicholas' Church in the centre of the city for literally centuries. You 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 cookies among many others or you can buy the ingredients for a delicious gourmet picnic.
If you are shopping for bread, vegetables or plants, Saturday is the best day to visit us. Craft and takeaway food stalls are there on every day we are open.
Many people come to the market to chat as well as to shop and it's a good place to meet local artisans and hear local issues discussed.
