The Dandelion Market takes its name from a famous outdoor market
that thrived in Dublin City Center back in the early 70’s. Starting out as a
one-man gig selling sheepskin coats from his front doorstep, friends soon joined in
selling anything from denim clothes to vinyl records. People from all walks of life could be found haggling with street vendors; you never knew what you might find in some
of these stalls. It was the place to be, growing from clothes to food to the city’s
poets and artists showcasing their creative wares. Live music began to
vibrate through the cobblestone streets where farmers traveled from
far and wide to sell their produce.
The Dandelion Market became an assault on the senses –
a place that was fashionable yet essential to its city’s life, morphing
over the years into a cultural landmark that today evokes a
nostalgia for a time when life was maybe a lot simpler –
when it was easier for people to focus on a few important
things: friends, food, family. Strangers became friends
in that place. And to think it all started with one man
and a sheepskin coat…
We suppose it’s just a part of what made that moment in time so special: Making a trip to “The Dando”
