Five Dublin markets will be out of action come June, as the Newmarket location will undergo refurbishment lasting a number of months.
Newmarket Square in the Liberties have been home to five of the most popular flea markets Dublin has to offer - Dublin Flea Market, The Pure Vintage Fair, World Culture Market, The Brocante and the Newmarket Collective. Making their mark in the city's most historic quarter, they blend into the happenings of the community and attract both locals and tourists looking to pick up some gems.
But come the 12th of June, all five Sunday markets will be out of a location and therefore, in transit until a new location is found. It is understood that the partnership behind the works - the Newmarket Partnership - have not responded to comments from other national media outlets covering the story.
The demolishment and refurbishment is part of an overall development plan for the Liberties - that will include several new buildings such as offices, a hotel and apartments.
