There's a new food market coming to Dublin 8, featuring some of the city's most loved producers, like Scéal bakery, White Mausu and the Dublin Food co-op. After months of uncertainly surrounding the Dublin Flea and whether they'll find another home, the Fumbally Stables have decided to start their own Saturday market, with eight traders, many of which had been trading at the Dublin flea before it closed last May.
The new market will take place every Saturday from 10am - 2pm, and the guys behind the Fumbally Stables say that, "As the city moves towards favouring hotels, and short-term let accommodation over community and cultural spaces, it feels like an important time to be able to present this small market offering to the Dublin 8 area."
They've focused on variety so that people can do the bulk of their weekly shop there, and no doubt the securing of Scéal and McNally Farm in particular is going to bring their loyal followers with them. Scéal had been trading at Pender's Market in Stoneybatter since 2017 but will cease to do so with the opening of the new market, and McNally Farm are keeping their regular Saturday stall at Temple Bar Market, with this one an additional site.
The full list of traders at the Fumbally Stables will be as follows:
McNally Family Farm - organic vegetables, herbs and fruit from North Dublin
Scéal Bakery - sourdough bread and pastries
Dublin Food Co-op - packaging free grains, pulses, nuts, seeds, (bring your own containers), raw & pasteurised milk with bottle return
Lilliput Trading Company - cheese, olives, cured meats
Fumbally Ferments - sauerkraut, kimchi and other probiotic rich foods
White Mausu - Peanut Rayu and more
Elmhurst Cottage Farm - seasonal vegetables, herbs, flowers, eggs and treats from the urban farm in Glasnevin
McEvoy Nurseries - potted plants, flowers, seedlings, medicinal plants
The Saturday market starts at the Fumbally Stables this Saturday, 9th March, and will run every Saturday from 10:00 - 14:00.
