St George & St Patrick

by greenrabbitdesigns


Yesterday we paid a visit to one of Belfast’s famous attractions, St George’s Market. They run a City Food and Craft market on Saturday mornings.


St George’s market was built between 1890 and 1896 so it has been on the go for quite a few years now and it’s great that this old Victorian market is still in use.

There was all kinds of produce, lots of lovely fruit and veg, I bought some lovely new season rhubarb for rhubarb crumble.

Some local produce and some with it’s origins from further afield.

There were cupcakes galore and the results of some very busy Northern Irish hens!!!


I loved this as it’s my son’s name, the christian names are different but the initials are the same!

There were lots of crafts on display too and joy, there was even a little yarn stall, where I may have purchased a couple of balls of yarn (it would have been rude not too!!!).


We were well entertained too!


And as today is St Patrick’s Day there were plenty of goodies on sale to help with the celebrations!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

Happy St Patrick’s Day to you all! 🙂

Vivienne, I really enjoyed the market! I’m with Jane, extremely rude not to buy yarn or anything you want. After all that’s what markets are for. I love Debbie Bliss yarn, so soft.
Happy St Partick’s to you, xoRobin

Happy St Patrick’s Day to you too Vivienne!

Lovely greens all over in that market, and that yarn…It would have been really, really rude not to purchase 😉

Sunshine from Finland!

What a fun visit. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, Vivienne.
My first stops at the market would be for eggs, rhubarb and some tea!!
Maybe this special market inspired your new strawberry brooch.
Thinking of you and your family…..

What a wonderful market! I’m about to dish up a Beef and Guiness casserole to the meat eaters in my family. I don’t eat it but it does smell good. It’s become a bit of a tradition in our house on St Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick’s Day, Vivienne! What a wonderful market…such a lovely traditional place, and so filled with fantastic things to see and buy. The yarn looks lovely, very soft! Have a great evening!

That look like a wonderful market Vivienne. I would have wanted ‘Belfast in a Box’! Some fresh rhubarb stewed with the shamrock shaped shortbread (try saying that fast) would go down a treat too! I hope you had a lovely St Patrick’s Day Vivienne. x

And a belated Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to you too Vivienne 🙂

That rhubarb looks lush … looking at it I see rhubarb crumble, and oxalic acid from the leaves for plant dyeing 🙂

Such a wonderful market Vivienne…I’m sure you had a fabulous day (I can’t pass a yarn stall either!)…Hope you had a lovely St.Patrick’s Day too…It’s so cold here this morning…spring seems to be a long way round that corner!

Wow that market looks brilliant with bits of everything and such a lovely old building. You would think somewhere the size of York would have something like that but we only have a smallish outdoor market. I like the coffee sign! x
