Beloved by the people of Cork for centuries, The English Market has recently gained popularity for its multicultural vendors selling international foods. Though a market has been on this site since 1788, the current structure didn't open until the 19th century. This market has always been known for its fish and butchers, which provide ingredients to many of the area's best restaurants. Stroll through through the space, talk with locals, and purchase some fresh produce or other goods along the way.
