MilkMarketLimerick Milk Market

One of Ireland’s finest markets – a source of exceptional Irish and International produce. The Saturday Food Market is the region’s most famous market which has been operating for over 150 years. It’s a real ‘buzzy’ market and a source of exceptional produce.

Here you’ll discover the very best of fresh, natural produce from great farmhouse cheeses and chutneys, just-caught fish and artisan meats, organic fruit & vegetables, to delicious healthy breads and fresh pressed juices. You’ll also be able to snack on gourmet sandwiches, wraps, pastries, chocolates, delicious crepes, soups and freshly brewed teas & coffees or buy fresh flowers and vibrant plants.

A haven for foodies!

The Famous Saturday Market has become a haven for all who care about the provenance and quality of the food they eat. From passionate amateur cooks to people on the look-out for variety and value or to those who just love finer foods, this market has it all.

But it’s not just the variety and quality of food and horticultural produce on offer that makes the Saturday Market so special – it is also about the people and the place. This market hosts a community of remarkable individuals from throughout the province, all of whom care deeply about the offering to their customers. Most of the stallholders are themselves producers who grow, rear or bake the food they sell. Others are importers with an intimate knowledge of the product they source from far and wide.

As it has evolved the Famous Saturday Market has gained a reputation as a repository of culinary skills, knowledge and understanding, all of which are imparted during the discourse of the market day. It is a place to explore, to ask questions, to discover new flavours and savour the unique atmosphere at hand.


Along with almost 50 stalls and 21 shop units to tempt even the most discerning shopper, the Famous Saturday Market also allows the visitor to relax, enjoy and observe the activities of this celebrated market from the vantage of the Mezzanine floor which is located above the Food Pavilion shops and accessible by stairs and lift. Of course you cannot but notice that the Milk Market is now weather-proofed, as it is housed under the cover of Ireland’s largest single-column supported canopy.

Opening Times

The Famous Saturday Market is open weekly from 08.00 to 15.00hrs (except Christmas Day and New Years Day). Be sure and get there early to get the freshest of the fresh produce!

Good parking is available nearby.

Don’t forget you can also visit the Friday City Market (10.00 to 16.00hrs) and the Sunday Variety Market (11.00 to 16.00hrs) at the Milk Market.
