Proper Bread in Dublin 2: Bread 41

I was in France for the new year and was so envious of my parents' routine of going to the bakery every morning to pick a baguette or pain de campagne. Even though the local baker operates a van delivery service to their remote hamlet they still feel they need to go to the village's bakery; it's a ritual that kicks off their morning routine. In the early evening if we had eaten most of the bread at lunch they'd run to the bakery again to get bread for dinner before it had closed at 7pm. We eat far too much bread in my family.

Good Vibes, Craft & Food: the Dublin Flea Christmas Market

The Dublin Flea Market (along with other Sunday markets) sadly had to close earlier this year due to the redevelopment of Newmarket Square. While the organisers have lost their usual market venue and are in search of a new home (you can support them here) they still managed to run their uber cool Dublin Flea Christmas Market at the Point Square in Dublin again this year.
