By the time the fruit market was shut down, it had been in operation for five years.
But with its demise, the market is remembered for its success in attracting a diverse array of shoppers.
The market’s business was always driven by people from a wide range of backgrounds, says Mr O’Brien.
“It’s very hard to imagine what would have happened had it been successful, but at the time, the community were very supportive of it,” he says.
“So it was very much a community-driven market.”
The fruit market’s success in bringing in customers was a big reason why the community had invested in the area, says community councillor Chris O’Shea.
“They’ve been very happy with what they’ve done, and I think the community are happy with the success,” he said.
What do you think? “
So we want to support them in the future.”
What do you think?
Is the community’s fruit market legacy worth the effort?
