Dublin’s newest food market launches tomorrow at an indoor venue near St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin 8. The Green Door Market will be open for business on Thursdays and Fridays (noon to 7pm) and on Saturdays (9.30am to 4pm).

Organic fruit and vegetables, meat and fish, bread, cakes, chocolates and fresh flowers will be on sale each week. Stallholders will include Coolanowle Farm organic meat, Lilliput Artisans, Fitzsimons Fishmongers, Tartine bakery, Silver Darlings herring, The Real Olive Company and Wild About.

Tomorrow’s launch party will run from 11.30am to 3pm and there will be free food and drinks, as well as music and children’s entertainment. The venue is 18 Newmarket, just off Cork Street.

The Dublin Food Co-Op trades from 12 Newmarket from Thursdays to Sundays and Oonagh Duggan, manager of the Green Door Market, says she believes the two ventures will compliment each other. See the greendoor.ie and dublinfood.coop.
