I’m a little dismayed about our new market. I visited the market on the first day of opening and was amazed at the selection and variety of products for sale. The building itself is lovely and the atmosphere and buzz of the place is great. We sat down and had a lovely lunch amoung the lively banter of the stall holders. Also the pinata lady has a stall there, i know she’s popular with the mumstown regulars. Also off the top of my head there was chocolates, designer clothes, soaps, flowers, handmade cards and antiques, oh and loads of jewellery. I thought it was a great addition to the town.
My mother in law was visiting this weekend and i though it would be a lovely treat to take her to the market. Although all the stalls were open and still had a lovely atmosphere it was very quiet. After talking to one stall holder it appears that people have not yet fully embraced this market. Without sounding like i’m on my soap box, I only just hope that drogheda will open its eyes to support this establishment and local traders. And hopefully it will flurish and provide us with even more variety and quality.August 11, 2008 at 10:48 pm #64832rossylisaMember

I’m not sure when it’s on but it’s opposite the old Tourist Info office, where the weavers used to be. So up the road you are looking up when you cross the footbridge from Scotch Hall. Maj…something street/road.
I was also waiting eagerly for it to open but the opening of it kind of passed me by. If it’s open between now and Thurs I’ll take the kids down. I agree, it’s so important to support our local tradersAugust 12, 2008 at 8:58 am #64838YvonneMember
Meant to get down to this, might get down this weekend.August 12, 2008 at 9:21 am #64841redbellsMember
Think the problem is no one knows its on or when it is on, is it everyday, just the weekend, what times? Have been wanting to go since I heard about it but it was always "going to be opened" never opened. Glad to hear it is open now but what are its hours/days/times?August 12, 2008 at 11:33 am #64845YvonneMember
I think its only opened either Thursday to Sunday or Friday to Sunday, not sure of times – you think they would have had a big spread in the paper when it did open!August 12, 2008 at 1:24 pm #64852munchinParticipant
they did have a spread in the drogheda leader and there was an add with the opening times in last week too it’s only open of a weekend think it might be fri-sundayAugust 12, 2008 at 1:41 pm #64856Taylor5Member
