Market in the Park is a Sunday market run by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council in the People’s Park, Dun Laoghaire, Ireland. After less than a year in service at the time, the market was still in its infancy and still developing.
The County Council wanted to identify why people were coming to the market, where they came from and how often they visited. An Opinionmeter customer satisfaction survey was developed and deployed by a team of two staff members carrying Opinionmeter Juniors. The customer satisfaction survey period lasted for five hours.
