A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.
And if you like to spend your downtime sipping coffee, eating and browsing for crafts and artisan goodies, a brand new Cork weekend market should be right up your street.
The new Marina Sunday Market is setting up in the old Cork Ford factory on Centre Park Road, bringing life and fresh energy to one of the city’s most famous industrial sites… and all just a short stroll from town.
Marina Sunday Market Cork brings a cosmopolitan continental style weekend market to Cork that ‘a city rising’, needs & deserves.
The Market sits on part of Ford’s old factory – bringing new life & energy to one of the city’s oldest industrial sites. Opening September 20th, 2020.

According to their social media, the market will offer “a cosmopolitan continental style” with plenty of space for visitors to roam while social distancing, opening from 9am until 6pm weekly.
The first stalls are set to open on Sunday, September 20th, 2020 with around a dozen stallholders confirmed for the first event.
GUJI speciality coffee bars are the first to announce they’ll be opening at the site, with the company unveiling a custom container for the new spot on Twitter.
Heads up Cork …
This is the pop up (not really a pop up) more like activation of a container coffee offering at a new market just outside the city using our GUJI coffee bar https://t.co/73pFkhhMuZ pic.twitter.com/UlyP1n91xI

GUJI is owned by Dubliner Alan Andrews who hit the headlines a few years back following his decision to make his Old Barracks Coffee Roasters in Birdhill, Tipperary an adults-only venue (it’s still child-free, although it looks like kids will be welcome at the Cork venue).
The GUJI team will be serving seven days a week from the Marina location.
