Hidden Histories: Dublin City Fruit & Vegetable Market

That there is an area of the capital known as ‘The Markets’ may be news to many listeners, but nestled between Church Street and Capel Street, there is still a district of the city where the working day begins and ends much earlier than across town. Here, fruit and veg are the main commodities, and within it all is a beautiful Victorian redbrick, the Dublin city Fruit and Vegetable Wholesale Markets. Next weekend an event called ‘Me Auld Flower’ is taking over the market building, a food and drinks festival over four days. It’s the second initiative in recent months to bring something new to the space and it opens up interesting discussions about what could happen to the site in future. Donal Fallon joins Gavan for another episode of Hidden Histories to discuss.
