The English Market Cork has entrances on Princes Street, Patrick Street, the Grand Parade, New Market Lane and Mutton Lane. It is a covered market supplying mainly food produce, local and imported to the people of Cork, Ireland and many business through its time, such as  fish, fruit, meat and vegetable. The origins of the market can be traced back to James 1st  in 1610, but the present building dates from 1786. In 1980 it was destroyed by fire and was refurbished by Cork Corporation to an award-winning design by the Cork city architect T. F. MacNamara,
