The unmissable Galway Races Summer Festival will run from July 31st until August 6th, 2023, at Ballybrit racecourse where there is promised music, fashion, and quality food.
Situated in the heart of Galway City, the company is committed to supporting local Irish suppliers. With Musgrave Marketplace situated on the Tuam Road mere minutes from the Ballybrit racecourse and Certified Irish Angus sourced from small family farms, the partnership showcases “the best of local sourcing”.
Musgrave Marketplace is the only 100% Irish-owned national food service, retail, and SME wholesaler.
The company works with over 800 Irish suppliers and stocks over 3,500 Irish products across its range and it works closely with Ireland’s top restaurants and hotels around the country.
The strong alliance between the producer, processor, and food service provider is key to delivering the tastiest, naturally marbled, and succulent Certified Irish Angus beef at the prestigious event this summer.
