My Day In Pictures: St. George’s Market

IMG_5717.JPG

One of my favourite places to visit when I’m home is St. George’s Market.  A stone’s throw from Belfast Central station, it’s a great place to wile away the hours.  Open Friday – Sunday you can start your day with breakfast from one of the many stalls – a good idea if you’ve been sampling the local pubs and clubs the night before.  And it’s not just local food you’ll find there – if you’ve a hankering for paella, for example, they’ve got you covered.

As well as drawing visitors from around the world traders come from all parts of the province and they are the real selling point of the market.  We love a good yarn, (that’s local talk for a chinwag,) so if you want to learn a bit about our culture simply strike up a conversation with one of the traders.

Last weekend I did just that and met local blogger Jeff from Belfast Times.  If you’re visiting the city or a local looking to road test the latest restaurant, activity or night out Jeff’s blog should be your first port of call.

Different traders appear at the market on different days so visit the website before you go or catch up with them on Twitter so you don’t miss your favourite.

Here are some pics from my last visit to give you a wee idea of some of the wares on offer.

See you next time,
