The Galway Saturday Market

Locals get up very early on Saturday in Galway in order to get the pick of the goods on offer at the Saturday food market. As many as 90 colorful stall-holders set out their wares in the area behind the Collegiate Church of St. Nicholas in the city center. Take your pick of the Mediterranean goods on offer at the Real Olive Company; sample a wide selection of Irish cheeses from Sheridan's Cheesemongers; treat yourself to an outdoor lunch at the Madras Curry Stall; get sushi from the Japanese-run Da Kappa-ya Sushi, and end on a sweet note with dessert from Yummy Crêpes. Organic-vegetable sellers, plant sellers, herbalists, cheese mongers, and bakers are joined by hat sellers, wood carvers, and knitwear stalls. A selection of Galway's famously wacky buskers entertain with music, juggling, and dance. Come early and hungry! www.galwaymarket.net.
