Today we are going to visit one really traditional place in the heart of Cork City. This food market has been open since 1788. It's one of the world's oldest municipal markets.
Some bread, fruit, and freshly caught seafood are just some of the specialities you can find at this place. Recently, the market gained worldwide fame when Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain visited it on her first ever state visit to the Republic of Ireland in 2011.
At the end of the session, you will have:
