While many of our monthly winners are chosen on the aesthetic appearance of their properties, sustainability and community involvement is also a huge part of the Tidy Towns ethos. We are therefore delighted to present this month’s award to Wickham Way, which not only looks great with its vibrant exterior paintwork and signage, it is also a hub for the sale of vintage clothing, handmade art and crafts, locally produced goods and produce, and a host of many community gatherings.
Wickham Way first opened in September 2021 as an indoor community space offering everything from savoury food, baked goods, vegan options, coffee, art, crafts, classes and more. It has been host to numerous cultural events throughout the year and has more in the works. They are very active on social media so follow them to stay up to date with what’s going on. The weekly indoor urban market takes place every Saturday from 10am-3pm, where you can meet the local traders who come to showcase their craft and learn about and support their small businesses. The Food Court is open from Thursday to Sunday week, and with their food trailers offering fresh local produce and dishes from around the world, you’re gonna want to check it out! There is plenty of seating and music too providing a great community buzz.
Wickham Way is fast becoming the go-to place in the city on a Saturday and Sunday morning to browse the market, enjoy the food and soak up the good vibes! You can contact the team by phone on 083-0933752, by email at email@example.com or on social media @wickhamwaylimerick to enquire about joining the market, using the space for classes or events or just to share your love for the place.
