Christmas Markets

Belfast is lucky to have two markets over the Christmas period, St. George’s Market that’s there all the time and the Continental Christmas Market that sets up in the grounds of the City Hall from Late November until a few days before Christmas.

I was at both this year, as I am most years and as I usually show a few images from the Continental Market I thought that this year I would show some from St. George’s Market.

To give some background St. George’s Market – It is an indoor market and was built between 1890 and 1896. It has won numerous awards and is renowned for its great atmosphere and quality of its fresh local produce. It even provides live entertainment!

I’m still playing catch up with my blog entries. Hopefully I’ll fall back into a routine with the new year.

A Happy New Year to all.
