The folks behind Eatyard, a new market space for food producers and traders in Dublin, have announced the first round of traders for their 24 November launch.
So who’s up?
“Think filthy burgers and sides loaded with finger licking toppings” – that’s what we’re told.
You’ll find Box Burger, usually, at their restaurant on Strand Road in Bray, Co. Wicklow. Their restaurant dinner menu is a mix of nachos, wings, ribs, and tacos, but the burgers are where its at. Their ‘Black Box’ (beef patty with Clonakilty black pudding) and Blue Cheese burgers are favourites but they do a handy vegan mix as well with their Seitan burger (topped with vegan cheese, lettuce, pickle and raw onione) along with the Chickpea & PB (peanut butter) burger.
Dublin Doughnut Company
Stop the lights.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, here’s where you can have a bit of craic with Dublin Doughnut Company bringing a ‘build-your-own’ ice cream doughnut, letting you pick your own doughnut base, complete with homemade ice cream and whatever toppings you like.
Try their Blackberry Ripple, Honeycomb or Spiced Apple Compote doughnut. You may need an hour or two to recover from the goodness of it all.

Their speciality is in rose veal and wild game, while their ‘Billy Burger’ is a big seller at market and catering events. Other delights include goat kebabs, this time of year you might get some wild venison burgers, pulled cabrito (kid goat) wraps, or a cabrito curry.
At heart, they’re all about sustainable food sourcing and are trying to promote a more permacultural solution to Ireland’s farming needs. The Antrim-based family farm was set up only five years ago and now boasts their own on-site butchery, complete with a farm shop, classes and more. Meat boxes can also be ordered online.
The Grand Opening
The Eatyard opens up on Thursday 24 November next to The Bernard Shaw on Dublin’s South Richmod Street.
