The aim of this article is to develop an understanding of the significance and meaning of these Polish shops within the Irish foodscape. In order to achieve this I will take a more-than-representational approach focusing on the practices, sensory reactions and material interactions Poles have within these stores and with their food products. It will draw on ethnographic observations and semi-structured interviews with Polish migrants to explore their experiences. Attention to these details reveals how Polish shops become meaningful within the Irish foodscape for providing a sense of home to Polish migrants living in Ireland.
