English Market

English Market Test

Cork’s English Market has served the people of Cork in the face of famine, flood, war and multiple recessions.  During this unprecedented public health crisis, we want to remain open to serve you, our customers. 

The English Market is, above all else, a food market for essential fresh produce.

Traders are working really hard to respond to the needs of customers - particularly elderly and vulnerable customers - and have developed a range of click/phone and collect and delivery services.  For further details click on the links below.

“... a civic space, a meeting place, a thoroughfare, and a bustling social hub of the city. With its variety of products, the pride of place accorded to small traders, the personalised service, the growing emphasis on organic products and reliance on small-scale producers, it is forever popular. A mix of traditional Cork fare and exciting new foods from afar, along with longstanding family-run stalls and newcomers from outside, all contribute to its unique appeal, which is celebrated widely, especially by visitors to the city...” O’Drisceoil & O’Drisceoil, "Serving a City", published by Collins Press


“In my opinion this is the best covered market in the UK and Ireland”
