    Around the City Outskirts: Satellite Shopping Centres

    by SabrinaSummerville Written Jun 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There was a time when shopping in Waterford was confined to the little family owned local stores in the City Centre, with the only Nationwide store being Shaws on the Quay.

    Then City Centre shopping centres started to emerge and the outside stores made their way in. Multi storey carparks became part and parcel of this and the locals objected strongly to paying for parking.

    In recent years, large shopping centres have begun to spring up in the outlying areas of the city, and this has mushroomed with the opening of the outer ring road two years ago.

    Now massive shopping centres man these satellite areas of the city and, in particular, there is a huge concentration of warehouse type stores selling electrical goods, furniture, hardware, and cars in these outlying areas.

    No more is grocery shopping confined to "town" (i.e. city centre) and you will find a major chain supermarket within 10 mins drive of wherever you live in the city.

    The beauty of these satellite centres is that parking is easy and free.

    The Country Market

    by SabrinaSummerville Written Feb 13, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every Saturday Waterford hosts a country market on O'Connell Street (parallel to the Quay).

    This is an opportunity for local cottage industries to display and sell their wares.

    It's mainly a food market selling locally made cakes and also some fresh organic fruits and vegetables.

    What to buy: My own favourites are the delightfully tasty cakes and jams produced by the Amish Mennonites who live mainly in the Dunmore East area. In particular I recommend their Apple jelly. Also try the home made breads.
