Aurora Andrus dives into Dublin’s street food scene
The world of street food has made its way to Dublin and it is booming. Food markets have become a well-known and frequent spot for people on the weekends and lunch breaks. Many of the food market stalls are only available at the markets themselves and when they are good, they quickly get a loyal customer base. These food stalls are making a big impact in Dublin’s food scene.

The Temple Bar food market has made a name for itself amongst the city markets. It is hopping every Saturday from 10 am – 4:30 pm. The Temple Oyster bar is a reoccurring stall, and the oysters are some of the best in Dublin. The Irish Village Market on Grand Canal Dock is another great market spot offering a diverse group of stalls on Thursdays from 11:30 – 2 pm. This market is popular amongst businesses in the area with queues piling up over lunch breaks. One of the favourites, Kanum Thai, offers restaurant quality, authentic Thai food.
The relatively new food market in Fitzwilliam Square has become increasingly popular in the area since it opened. From 11:30 – 2 pm on a Thursday, it is bustling. There is something for everyone, from Indian cuisines to all kinds of green foods for the healthy eater. The Howth Market has been happening every Saturday and Sunday for the last 10 years. The market is small but jam-packed with a variety of stalls. Bart’s Belgian Chocolates are to die for and the rich quality is far more satisfying than most mainstream chocolate boxes.
“Eat Yard, next to the Bernard Shaw, is always busy and offers up some seriously tasty food from burgers to cannolis.”
People’s Park Market is a personal favourite due to the incredible food available on offer and is open on Sunday’s from 11 am – 4 pm. Food Fiesta serves delicious, authentic paella made by a true Spaniard. The Irish Charcoal Barbeque serves up local meat, barbecued to perfection and smothered in delicious sauces. There are a variety of tasty treats like the Man of Aran stall, who makes the most incredible, award-winning fudge. This is one of the best places to be in Dublin when the sun is shining, so grab some hungry friends and get tasting!
