Our reader Finn got in touch with this brilliant tip:
“There’s two small veg outlets open early morning to early afternoon at the corner of the Luas line and Capel Street (the town end of Smithfield along the Luas line), where you can get shockingly good value on fruit and veg.
Recently, I went there and got: lettuce, red onion, 3 lemons, 4 tomatoes, mangetout, cucumber, 3 kiwis. All for 2 euro. The price is never totted up and seems to depend on the vendor’s mood.
They’re both wholesalers and some of the stuff is very ripe, but you can find great, fresh produce for a fraction of what you pay in Tesco just down the way in Jervis.
Myself and friends find them great and think they deserve a shout out.”
I have passed these places approximately 15,000 times on the Luas, but always thought they were for bulk buying only. This tip could potentially change my life. Thanks Finn!
