The Treaty City Brewery which will host the Slow Sunday market.

THE Slow Sundays group is offering people a chance to enjoy some jazz and leisurely retail therapy in Limerick City this June Bank Holiday Sunday.

The Slow Sundays market returns to Treaty City Brewery on Nicholas Street on June 5 from 12pm to 4pm with ten vendors selling preloved, vintage and handcrafted goods.

Co-Founder of Slow Sundays, 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 sustainability at the core of the market, there will be artwork, preloved and vintage clothing for children 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; speciality 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.”
