The main shopping areas are of course right at the cruise ship dock, at the Heritage Quay Shopping Center which is just outside of the dock are and has a lot of great luxury goods, the Vendor's Mall where you'll find local artisans peddling their wares, at the Heritage Market if you'd like to sample local produce, Redcliffe Quay for artwork and potter, and Woods Mall for your typical mall setting.
