22 Feb Made in Galway – New Website launched
Made in Galway is an initiative that showcases the best of Galway produce and has been running since 2011. On one website you can view beautiful products from over 400 different food and craft producers that are based in Galway City and County. The vast array of products on the website ranges from fashion items, to Jewellery, to sculpture to fine foods and everything else in between. It is a cornucopia of gift ideas for all ages.
www.madeingalway.ie provides details on local producers, their products and where these are stocked in one online location. If you want to get a gift from Galway for the special people in your life, this is the website you must visit.
The Made in Galway initiative marries the online retail world with the traditional marketplace. The Made in Galway initiative uses technology to inform people of the quality producers around them and encourages them to buy from them through supporting events like local markets and festivals and directing them to local stockists or retail outlets to keep business local.
The Made in Galway website contains details on Food and Craft Producers and the Retailers that stock them. There is also the Made in Galway facebook page which provides regular details on local markets, retail events, fashion shows and exhibitions. Producers regularly update their own pages to showcase new products, special offers or events. Made in Galway also supports markets at events such as the Galway Food Festival, Connemara Mussel Festival, and Bia Lover throughout Galway.
