Ronan's Full & Plenty Farm Shop, New Ross was established to bring the best of local produce to the people of New Ross and its environs, as well as showcasing the best of Wexford food to people passing through the town.
Deirdre Connery, President of the County Wexford ICA, cut the tape at the official opening of the shop, located on the quay at Marshmeadows beside Sid's Diner, recently. The shop continues a definite rejuvenation of the area following the opening of Harvey's Café, The Green Angel Trading Co., Rail to Rail, Craft Central, Equi-Needs and Cleary's Animal World.
Run by dedicated foodies, the Ronan women - Jolly, Paula and Alex Ronan - the shop has an emphasis on local produce from excellent breads to a wide range of meats, vegetables and sweet treats. The Ronan's are enthusiastic about the number and quality of food producers in the county and nearby.
'Our mission is to get as many local producers' and growers' products on our shelves and in our fridges to be enjoyed by our customers and their families. We believe it is important for us all to support our local food producers - if we all do our little bit by shopping local and buying local we'll help to build a sustainable food economy in Wexford,' commented Paula Ronan.
'At the moment we have 42 Wexford producers stocked in our shop and a good number of products from neighbouring counties. It's a great adventure discovering all of these talented local producers and bringing them to our customers,' says Jolly Ronan. Ronan's Full & Plenty also stocks speciality foods from further afield.
The shop has had great and welcome support from food fans in the area so far.
