New Outdoor Markets

Local Farmers, Local Food Producers, Galway Chamber of Commerce, Local and National Policymakers

Year round weekly farmers’ markets and food markets would be established at appropriate locations around the city. These markets would be operated in a similar manner to the Galway City Market near St. Nicholas’ Church and would allow local producers and suppliers sell directly to the public. Suitable locations include Woodquay and on the pedestrianised (west) side of Eyre Square. Only the west side of Woodquay would be required so as to allow traffic on other side. Outdoor markets could also be established on a trial basis in suburban areas to assess commercial viability.
