To Market, To Market…

The market and grocery store experience is not to be missed when visiting a different country or locale. Cork City is no exception. The English Market has dozens of stalls selling fresh fish, meats, pastas, produce, cheeses, olives, and convenience foods. But mostly ingredients. If you are visiting the market, here is a MAP of the stalls.

Convenience foods is fast becoming my new favorite phrase. It is what Americans may consider “semi-homemade” or “from fridge to oven to table” dining. What I was accustomed to seeing in the frozen food aisle is available here unfrozen. Tonight, we will have Chicken Kiev with corn and a side salad. Maybe it is just my first impression and shock that their markets are not 1/3 frozen food aisles, but I must admit I am enthralled. Even the market has fresh-baked loaves galore, including loaves from O’Keeffe’s Bakery.
