When visiting Dublin why not see the new The Point Village Market, open 9am to 5pm every Saturday and Sunday.

THE BIGGEST open market that Dublin has seen in the past 30 years.

The Point Village Market will occupy the site around the O2. It will run every weekend all year around.

Owner Harry Crosbie said he wanted it to be modelled on the medieval squares of Europe and has asked for ideas from the public to make it vibrant.

Students and the public will be able to sell their wares for free on a first-come first-served basis by applying for one of the 30 available stalls through the market’s website.

There will be a music stage every weekend with an ensemble of musicians from the Dublin City Soul Festival providing the first entertainment and a Theatre of Food marquee.

It is being billed as a market for “everything that the Celtic Tiger forgot” and he hoped it would help to raise morale by creating a civic space for artists, musicians and performers.
