It’s been the word on the street for sometime, but now we have confirmation that May 2018 is to be the last month The Dublin Flea and the four other Sunday Markets will be trading in Newmarket, Dublin 8.
The five thriving Sunday Markets are loosing their home, as the redevelopment of Newmarket Square in Dublin 8 looms closer.
The markets (Dublin Flea Market, The Brocante, Fusion Sundays – World Culture Market, Newmarket Collective and The Pure Vintage Fair) were given notice to leave the Green Door premises where they were operating from, effective June 12th 2018.
It is understood that the first stages of demolition and redevelopment of the existing units will take place soon after this.
The Sunday collective will be in transition from this date and without a home until a new venue is secured.
The market group has become a much loved and important part of Dublin market culture and indeed the local community since the Dublin Flea Market first opened its doors in 2008.
In a joint statement from the markets, all five Sunday markets are said to have joined together in search of a new a new city centre location and are positive they will secure one in the coming months.
The markets are on the hunt for a large indoor or outdoor venue in Dublin city centre close to public transport with parking.
The introduction of the established Sunday market collective to a new area would bring with it guaranteed footfall, business opportunities and a strong community focus – an exciting opportunity for any district in Dublin.
