On this visit to Belfast, Northern Ireland, Ursula was hot to visit St George’s Market. This is the last Victorian market in Belfast, and the original market on this site dates back to the 1890s. Inside you’ll find restaurants, food vendors, souvenirs, arts & crafts, clothing & accessories, jewelry, flower arrangements and other plants, and antiques & collectibles. Yes, you can spend hours perusing all the vendors and their offerings. We certainly did.
The market reeks of hospitality. And one vendor in particular was quite the conversationalist and a really fun guy. Below is Ursula posing with Terry Beattie and his collection of marmalades from The Offbeat Bottling Company. We brought back a few jars of his Famous Extremely Orange Marmalade, which has won several awards.
Orange is not the only flavor on hand, and marmalade not Terry’s only offering:
If you head out to St George’s, Terry operates his both of Saturdays and Sundays. Tell him I sent you. Now for a photo gallery/slide show of other St George’s Market sights:
