The Guardian recently had a post about 10 of the Best... Markets. And little old St George's Market in Belfast came in 6th. WOOHOO!

St George’s market, Belfast
This is as much for entertainment as your five-a-day. Musicians serenade you around the Victorian market hall and you may catch a fashion show or food festival. Fridays are for those who want familiar veg, a nice bit of fish and the odd antique. Saturdays are for thrills. That’s when American cookie-makers and chocolatiers move in along with purveyors of fancy local meats and cheeses, continental pastries, speciality teas and pasta and Caribbean snacks. There are also plant and flower stalls and an abundance of arts and crafts.
