HOURS: Friday:   10am–3pm,

               Saturday: 8am–3pm,

               Sunday:  11am–3pm

The objectives of the Milk Market are:

  • to provide Limerick residents and visitors with access to a wide variety of fresh, local, in-season products, typically directly from the producer.
  • to provide a centralised location for local producers (food and non-food produce), who work to agreed standards, to profitably market their produce directly to the buying public.
  • to enhance the centre of Limerick’s retail and commercial district.
  • to create an informal, social gathering and trading space in an open air setting that can be enjoyed by Limerick residents, visitors and by the local business community.
  • to attract shoppers by presenting a calendar of themed market days, activities and events that constantly appeals and surprises and showcases popular products, often unearthing and supporting new products and talents.
  • to project the Milk Market, as the historic market it is, to locals and visitors.
  • to champion the environmental concept of ‘green’ in the city.
  • to have a positive influence on the physical space around the market, including the retailers and any casual trading close-by.
  • to champion the concept of ‘fresh’, ‘local’ and ‘in season’ produce generally, encouraging restaurants and other food outlets throughout the City to embrace the concept. In this way, the Milk Market will have a positive influence on Limerick’s
  • Development as a centre of food excellence (in all its facets from restaurants to production).
