Cork English Market
The English Market is one of Cork's greatest assets, with an array of butchers selling traditional Cork meats, fruit and veggie shops selling at discount prices, fishmongers, Italian and French cheese stalls, fresh bread stands and more. Early in the morning, chefs from various restaurants and cafes drop in to buy their supplies. It is also popular with visitors as it is a unique shopping experience that really should not to be missed.
I thought the food on offer looked nice. A lot of organic foods, we are from Calif. and eat a lot of sushi, as in daily . I did not believe my eyes with the guy selling "so called"sushi (situated in the back near the other exellent fishstalls) He actually dropped the sushi rice on the floor scooped it back in the pan ,and as my husband and our friends notice bluntly started turning out sushi again?! Unbelievable in the states he would be shut in a sec. That is not all though; Fish he was filleting he laid out on a dirty dishwasher cloth, which he previous used to clean out the sink with. Somebody should educate this person about this.This is a healthhazard
This stall was the only one selling dried out fish terrines as well. Yet again the rest of the market was looking wonderful, one person like this gives out a bad impression I think.
This is a must see for nayone visiting Cork. The atmosphere of the crowded market on a busy morning is intoxicating. Stop off and have a coffee or sandwhich in one of the amazing cafes or get some delicious traditionally Cork cuisine or some from much further away.
After the fire in the 80's the market was spectacularly refurbished incorporating much of the materials salvaged from the old market. It has lost none of its character. Its amazing to think that it all could have been lost if proposals to build shops and offices on the site after the fire were accepted!
This is a real Cork institution and internationally recognised as one of the finest covered markets in Europe. You must visit!!
