Your Local Enterprise Office would like to invite you to participate in this year’s Cork & Kerry Food Market which will be hosted at Cork City Hall on the 4th & 5th November 2023

Approved applicants will receive a 50% stand subsidy from their LEO office, valued at €307 inclusive of vat.

This event now in its 12th year has grown from strength-to-strength. It has been made possible by the participation of some of our best Cork /Kerry based artisan food producers together with the support of the Local Enterprise Offices across Cork & Kerry, Cork County Council, Cork City Council, Kerry County Council and Bord Bia. Last held in 2019 the event was an enormous success and attracted in excess of 10,000 visitors over the two days.

Cork & Kerry Food Market is a calendar highlight for foodies. Munster’s largest indoor food market will feature more than 80 local food and drinks artisan producers. It is a great family day out with free cookery demonstrations from several Munster’s top chefs, children's workshops, and live entertainment throughout the weekend.
