Merchant’s Market, Dublin – What’s it all about ?
I hadn’t heard of the Merchant’s Market up until a few weeks ago and as soon as I did I decided to pop along and check it out. Situated in Merchants Yard, East Wall Road, Dublin 3, the market is advertised as the largest indoor market in Dublin and boasts a massive 100 stalls or more. It opens every Saturday and Sunday from 10.00am to 5.00pm and with plenty of free parking (there’s a luas stop not far away either), it’s easily accessible.
The market has everything from bric-a-brac to unique collectables, vintage clothing and footwear to antique furniture and paintings. As I am ‘supposed’ to be in saving mode I didn’t part with any of my wonga that day but I did spot lots of gems, including some brilliant looking paintings in which I was advised that I could leave a deposit to hold … but I had to get my saving hat on and pass it by. I would definitely recommend it as a place to go if you are looking for some unique vintage items for your home or if you are organising an event and need quirky pieces to set the ambience. As with most things in life, you won’t find everything charming but remember ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ also if you do spot something you like don’t be afraid to haggle as the Merchants are friendly and it is a market after all …
