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.

A fabulous place to discover, especially for those looking for fresh local meats, international produce, or the unfamiliar finds. There's plenty of stalls too serving food to go, the sushi is very good! It makes for a great place to visit in the city no matter what your culinary skills, or food taste may be.
Nice place to stroll around and see the produce. I went to the side of the cafe with table service, and it was lovely. Came here on a Wednesday morning, and it wasn’t crowded at all. One of the stalls was selling English Market reusable tote bags for €2.50, which was a great and reasonably priced souvenir.
