Love Your Markets
@LOVE YOUR MARKETS
“A city with no housing and no markets is not a city.”
Help save our markets.
After trading successfully for ten years in Newmarket Square, Dublin 8, the Dublin Flea Market lost its home due to the redevelopment of the square and its warehouses. Sadly we were not the only market to lose this space; five other weekend city markets also closed down. We have now all been actively looking for a new home for over one year. Luckily Dublin Flea Market has been given a trial run in The Digital Hub for the last Sunday's of May, June and July. We are very excited to get everyone together again and hope to see you there.
Please make a donation.
The Dublin Flea Market and Dublin Flea Christmas Market are only possible thanks to the funding and support of those that believe in them. Dublin City Council Local Enterprise Office have been the funding partner of the Dublin Flea Christmas Market now for 3 years and we are very grateful for their continued support. However there are more funds needed to support the monthly market. We want to buy new tables, gazebos and equipment so we can piece ourselves back together bit by bit after our year hiatus.
With this funding we also want to build an effective campaign to lobby for change in 2019. We want our markets to be supported by Dublin’s policy makers and for markets to be protected and valued for the benefits they bring to the city, its residents and visitors. The Dublin City Development Plan is up for review this Autumn and we would like to present our findings to DCC in an attempt to influence policy. We have been working on this and researching all year. If anyone would like to get involved in this campaign over the summer please contact [email protected]
Your support and donations are greatly appreciated.
