St. George's Market
St. George's Market has been a long-established market and events' venue in Belfast. You have to be up early to catch up with real good bargains. St. George's fish is the freshest and cheapest in the city. Squid and salmon aside, you can get almost anything here. From shoelaces to second-hand books, carpets to candle holders, aubergines to angel figurines, just about anything. On special occasions like Christmas, Easter and St. Patrick's Day, the market is abuzz with exotic foods and live music.
The variety, the people, the atmoshpere was all fantastic. We went on a Saturday late morning and there was live music from a local band there. So you can walk around the stalls to see and buy all sorts, and there are some continental fast food stalls too so we ate lunch there and sat down and enjoyed the music. Definately a great experience to the overall visit of Belfast.
