The Block T & Market Hub Christmas flea market is a massively anticipated event that makes your shopping experience a hell of a lot easier than conquering the wilds of Grafton Street or Dundrum. Set in Block B on Smithfield Square, you can pick up something for everyone as you peruse over 120 stalls. There is a huge focus on local talent and you’ll pick up unique and alternative gifts from the huge range of vintage, art and jewellery, record and vinyl, local producer and fashion stalls. There will also be  a pop-up café in the venue over the weekend. So, divvy out your good list and naughty list and nail Christmas shopping in one swoop.

What has it got?

Seating:  In the pop-up café, there will be couches, tables and chairs for you to rest your weary feet. There will be a mixture of chairs of all different heights and some will have arm rests.

Doors:  The doors are very wide here but they might need an extra push as they can be heavy to open.

Ground:  Concrete stone floors.

Stairs: It’s all flat inside. Not a step in sight.

Bathrooms: There are no bathrooms in Block B but neighbouring businesses like Light House Cinema, Generator Hostel, Oscars and Third Space offer their bathroom facilities. They all have wheelchair accessible bathrooms.

Spaciousness: Block B is a large space and even though there will be 120 stalls to navigate, there will be plenty of space. There will be some human traffic to face as there will be plenty of crowds coming and going over the weekend.

Helpfulness of Staff: The staff will do their very best to make your Christmas Bazaar experience as easy as possible!

Parking: There is wheelchair parking available beside the Maldron Hotel on Smithfield Square and on New Church Street. There is also a car park below Light House Cinema with plenty of wheelchair parking spots.
