Sellers of fresh produce are being given the chance to become part of one of the most famous markets in the world.
Cork’s English Market is currently accepting applications for the long-term lease of two of its units.
The two units available are stalls 1 and 2 at the Princes Street entrance to the Market.
They are available individually or as a combined unit. Stallholders can expect to pay approximately €7,250 per annum for each unit, between rent, rates and service charges.
“The English Market is known for its traditional food offering and family businesses being passed down from generation to generation. However, the success of the market also depends on the introduction of new and innovative food products,” Manager of The English Market Órla Lannin said.
“This opportunity is great for The English Market as well as the traders who take up residency in the available units, as it will allow us to introduce something new into the market and attract new customers.
“These stalls historically have done very well in the market due to their location, so I have no doubt whoever trades in there will have great success.”
Trading has been taking place in The English Market for nearly 230 years since it first opened in 1788.
It is the oldest covered food market in Ireland and an important part of food culture in Cork, famously welcoming Queen Elizabeth for a visit in 2011.
All proposals must be submitted to the office of Crowley Property, No. 2 The Maples, Pembroke Wood, Passage West, Cork; or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 12 noon on Wednesday, November 22.
