Galway Market returns to the streets this weekend

The popular St. Nicholas Market is returning to life in Galway City this weekend, with social distancing restrictions in place.

A number of the Galway Market traders have been operating online since it closed due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The city council has now confirmed that the market will be returning this weekend, the first since Ireland began Phase 1 of lifting the nationwide lockdown imposed to fight the pandemic.

“Galway City Council would like to confirm that the St Nicholas Saturday and Sunday Markets resume this weekend.”

“We also confirm that we can accommodate not only local food producers, but also a hot food offering with social distancing, due to the numbers that wish to attend.”

The reopened market will require strict adherence to social distancing and hand hygiene guidelines, which will be managed by traders at each stall.

The city council will be monitoring adherence to these guidelines this weekend, and may make changes as needed for next weekend.

“Galway City Council is currently finalising plans with the Traders on a revised layout which will enable a full return to the Market of all remaining traders in the coming weeks.”
