Hi all this week we will be visiting the DUBLIN FLEA MARKET - Dublin Food Coop, Newmarket Square, Dublin 8.
The flea market takes place every last Sunday of the month. As we've never been here before we will meet at what seems to be the main entrance at 2pm. At 4pm we will meet at the main entrance again and decide where to have our usual coffee - at the market or elsewhere. If you're lost - Jessica's mobile number is 086 818 5537.
There's lots of free parking spaces right outside the door. Find a map here http://www.dublinflea.ie/dublin-flea-market-contact-get-in-touch.html
Here's the blurb from their website - The Dublin Flea Market is a non profit driven social enterprise that promotes sustainability and opportunity in the wider community. It is as much about innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration as it is about fun, haggling and friendship. We opened our doors for the first time in November 2008 and since then it has grown into one of Dublin's most loved markets. It takes place on the last Sunday of every month in The Co-op on Newmarket square, Dublin 8. There are 60 rotating stalls each month (40 indoor and 20 outdoor) selling everything from vintage clothes to second hand bikes, retro furniture and random odds and ends - pretty much everything you would expect to find at a flea market. As well as the buying and selling we usually have a mix of djs, live bands or whatever we can throw together on the day to keep the folks entertained, as they soak up the atmosphere, drink a coffee and fill their bellies with homemade falafel, belgian waffles and greek dishes. The Co-op's organic food store is also open on market days with the best selection of organic and fair-trade goods in Dublin.
Plenty to sketch - it's an inside/outside affair so dress up warm!
If you've not been out before, just look for a group of people holding sketch pads, or get stuck in with your drawing and meet up at 4pm for a coffee.
See you there!
