Point of Interest
“St Georges Market is 100's of years old and is first and foremost a fish market, but it now serves many different types of fresh and cooked food from different parts of the world. It also has stalls selling anything from local art and pictures, to books and crafts and you can enjoy a walk round it while listening to some live music being played in the middle. A real mix of everything and a must see when in Belfast. Only open from Friday - Sunday. ”
