A lunchtime gem at The Green Door Market

A spur of the moment decision led myself and my little boy to The Green Door Market’s new home on the Old Naas Road today.

And it turned out to be a lovely outing indeed.

The Green Door Market is an indoor farmers/food market with stalls supplying excellent quality produce located in Dublin close to the city centre.

As it was a Thursday, the market opened at 12. We arrived at about 12.15 and had our choice of the parking out front. We wandered in and took our time looking around.

I had brought my little boy’s lunch along in a lunchbox, so I bought myself a salad plate and a pierogi (a handmade dumpling, a Polish speciality) from Twisted Dough – a little food stand at the back of the market that turned out to be quite special.

The salads were fresh and tasty and the pierogi was so good I ordered two more!

I spotted some tasty-looking toasties getting made, a beautiful steaming bowl of soup and hot coffees on the go. I’m not easy to impress but this little spot is a gem.

We browsed around (I browsed, my son ran around exploring everything!) a bit more after our food. I bought a selection of fresh organic meats from the Coolanowle Organic Farm stall and one or two other bits including a jar of the much-hyped White Mausu Peanut Rayu I’ve been seeing all over Instagram lately. I also bought some fresh fruit, veg and sourdough bread. I was pleasantly surprised at the prices, especially with the organic meat.

I hear the market is much busier on the weekend, both with more stalls and more people, and I will definitely be back to check it out then too. For now though, this could be my new Thursday thing.
