For the best Fresh Fish, Veggies, meat & lots of other interesting goods. It is open on Saturday from 9am, but only get there after 10am as people are still setting up at 9am. Lots of interesting shops & walkways in the area to add to the market experience.

We stopped by the market on Saturday morning in the hopes of grabbing breakfast before leaving Galway for the weekend. It made me wish that a) we were staying and b) that we had a kitchen because there was so much good, fresh seafood and produce. Alas, we were limited to purchasing things that were ready to eat. So, here's what we had for our market breakfast: First, coffee from a little coffee stand, then we had sandwiches made from what I consider to be the best bagel ever. Galway Bay Bakery makes killer bagels, and then makes them more awesome by stuffing them with all sorts of goodness. Mine was fresh mozzarella, pesto, etc. on a pizza bagel; his was smoked salmon, cream cheese, etc. I loved these so much that I hoped to track down more bagels when we returned to Galway on Monday--later I figured out that this bakery does markets only, and is only at the Galway market Saturday. So, if you want the awesome bagels, go to the market on Saturday. We also got fantastic fresh juices, and picked up some strawberries for the road. (And in non-food items, we bought a couple of handmade hats for gifts.) The market isn't huge, but it does have a nice variety and is definitely worth a stop. Especially for the bagels.

Well, I think the title says it all. Some crepe makers/ vendors have been there for decades! An authentic and delicious experience.

Stop here for lunch if you're in Galway when the market is open - we went to a wonderful stand serving crepes... probably the best savory (ham and cheese) crepe I've ever had! Well worth a visit

Great local artists! Every vendor was very friendly and passionate about their work. I bought several Christmas gifts from different vendors. Loved the enameled copper jewelry

This market was open most days during our 2 weeks in Galway, which I think was due to it being the Galway International Arts Festival time - otherwise, I believe it’s only open on weekends, but I’m not positive on that.

It’s a smaller sized market but still lovely - beautiful flower arrangements and produce, hand made crafts, clothing and jewelry, and a variety of food carts.

Over our 3 visits there, we especially enjoyed the homemade donuts, curry combo plate, Nutella crepe, falafel salad box, hamburger, and pizza bagel. It was all DELICIOUS and fairly priced. I also heard good things about the bahn mi truck (it had a very long queue) but we ran out of time and appetite!

Some vendors are cash only, so do plan accordingly.

If you're in Galway City on a Saturday morning, try to get to the wonderful market held outside Saint Nicholas church. There are vendors with local produce and artists selling their work. If you don't have time for breakfast, no worry - plenty of food stalls to tempt you.
