After a stroll through the market on a rainy day we stumbled upon an old carriage full of magical items. A beautifully dressed lady with two charming sighthounds reminded us that it was Bloomsday, the day on which James Joyce’s masterpiece Ulysses takes place and invited us into the world of Molly Blooms, whose worn-out wagon was parked in front of MayFly and Lucy’s Lounge at Temple Bar. And so we jumped into a place of magic, colorful lights, monsters, circus clowns, freaks and fashionistas with attitude. You can spot Molly Blooms Outfitters wagon at various festivals in Ireland during the summer
Since I moved to Dublin I’ve tried to find a place to buy organic vegetables and so far the best place has been the Temple Bar Food Market (live food), which takes place on Saturdays just next to the bigger Meeting House Square market. The market basically consists of one big stall, where both local produce and organically grown fruit & veg from other European countries can be purchased. Tip: Bring your own shopping bag!
