This free event is open to the public and attendees will purchase tokens as currency, to enable them to sample taster plates from various producer stalls. Applications for stalls are now open, and those with offerings that complement the theme are invited to apply.

Inspired by the culture of international street food, the food offering will also have an Irish twist with all produce bring sourced locally. 

Limerick Food Group is a voluntary group of people working with food in Limerick and wanting to promote it together. The group is working hard to promote local Limerick food produce online and offline. The future for this group appears bright as they are working alongside many other Irish food groups and organisations in implementing their ideas. Ideally, the group would like to implement a liaison coordinator in the near future. The Limerick food group welcome all suggestions of events, ideas etc. that support their initiative and future plans.

Application forms can be received by emailing [email protected] or contacting Limerick Food Group through their Facebook group, which is always open to new members. #BiaLuimni
