Word on the street is that the Dublin Co-op Wholefood shop is a good thing. Fact on the street is that that word is true. The fairtrade and organic market takes place every Thursday and Saturday and the Co-op Wholefood Shop is open during those times.
With one of the largest dairy free milk selections I've seen in Dublin and a huge variety of food allergy friendly products such as chocolates, yoghurts, breads, cereals and condiments it will be easy to find a reason to take a trip to 12 Newmarket. It may seem a little off the beaten track but whether you are getting your weekly groceries or visiting Dublin as a tourist a market is always a feel-good experience and the Dublin Co-op is a great way to connect with the people and see more than the corporate face of the city.
If you need further persuasion: Dublin Co-op has some of the best wholefood prices that I've seen in Dublin and have no fear: there is also ample parking so you can stock up!
The Thursday opening is much quieter than the Saturday which is beneficial if you are looking for a quiet occasion to stock up on your weekly health food products but if you are looking for the buzz and variety of a marketplace be sure to make your visit on the Saturday opening (especially if you are a tourist)!
Tel: (01) 454 4258
Opening Times: Thurs 14:00-20:00 ; Sat 09:30-16:30 and independently run Sunday markets (see website for upcoming dates)
