Limerick Milk Market – an all-year-round venue for local food producers to sell direct
The Business Plan encouraged the Trustees and City Council to look beyond Saturday trading and weekday use as a car park towards creating a regional attraction which focussed regeneration into this historic City quarter. The weather protection canopy has created an architectural landmark and given local producers the guaranteed all-year-round venue they need to sell fresh, seasonal produce direct to Shoppers.
A focus for inward investment and regeneration and an informal, free visitor attraction
Imaginative management by the Trustees and support from the City Council has made Limerick Milk Market a champion of ‘green’ values and a centre of food excellence. It now trades three days per week and offers an Arts and Entertainment venue and a fun social space for residents and Visitors. It’s imaginative calendar of themed market days, activities and events has helped it evolve into a regional showcase for fashion and crafts as well as food.
