Limerick Slow Sundays – “By giving small businesses the Slow Sundays platform to sell their products, we hope that they will see the potential of this area to grow their businesses,” says co-founder Stephen Cunneen.

With quality and sustainability in mind, expect to find beautiful artwork, vintage clothing and ceramics.

This June Bank Holiday weekend, the Limerick Slow Sundays Market returns to Treaty City Brewery on Nicholas Street. There will be 10 vendors over two floors selling preloved, vintage and handcrafted goods.

Co-Founder of Slow Sundays Market, Catriona O’ Donoghue, says “The whole ethos behind Slow Sundays is to create a space where you can take it easy, enjoy the atmosphere and shop mindfully. We want you to buy things you fall in love with, rather than buying stuff for the sake of it, so we’ve put a lot of thought into what’s on offer.”

With quality and sustainability in mind, expect to find beautiful artwork, preloved and vintage clothing for kids and adults, handcrafted ceramics and jewellery, dried flowers, preloved homewares, and upcycled furniture. There will also be live jazz music to enjoy, as well as baked goods from local chef, Keith Pigott; specialty coffee from Limerick Roastery, Eleven14; and, locally crafted beer from Treaty City Brewery.

Co-Founder of Slow Sundays, Stephen Cunneen, says, “Nicholas Street is the old heart of the city. It used to be a thriving retail street with a diverse offering and we want to see that vision realised again. By giving small businesses the Slow Sundays platform to sell their products, we hope that they will see the potential of this area to grow their businesses.”

The first Slow Sundays Market took place in early April this year and was met with positivity and a great turnout. The market is the second to pop up in Limerick in recent times, with The Wickham Way on Wickham Street growing rapidly since opening its doors in late 2022. 

The next Limerick Slow Sundays Market is on Sunday, June 5, from 12-4pm. This is a family-friendly event so why not take advantage of the long weekend and come browse the stalls.
