Nineteen traders formerly operating in Glasnevin at a popular farmer’s market have moved literally around the corner, writes Rose Barrett, to a new venue, only 200 yards away at 13 Blackwater Road.

Now trading as Glasnevin Food Market, the last two Saturday’s trade was brisk, and people were delighted to see some of their favourite chocolatiers, bakers, and meat vendors!

Among those who are now up and running on Blackwater Road are MUD Bakery, Spring Cottage Organic Farm, The Good Crop CompanySourdough Sisters, The Crepe Escape, The Patty Wagon 79, The Purple Pantry, Janet’s, Killua Castle, Charlene’s Wholesome Pantry, The Proper Chocolate Company, Sarah & Olive,The Green Angel Trading Company and McEvoy Market Garden.

Following the first day of the new pop-up market on Saturday 6 last, the group posted: “What a day we had yesterday – a huge thanks to all our customers and traders. The pop-up wouldn’t have been possible without the huge team of volunteers that have been working around the clock since Monday morning.”

Several months ago, before Christmas, traders were notified that a new owner had acquired the market location and stall holders at Glasnevin Farmer’s Market were given notice to quit. However, the traders were given a stay, but have now moved to the new pop-up destination on Blackwater Road, and judging from last week’s success, clearly, customers love the new location. Normal trading times tomorrow resumes from 8.30am-2.30pm.
