Mission Statement - back to top
To our host, Local Authority, Festival Committee, Event Organiser or Shopping Centre, The French Market of Ireland (FMI) aims at offering a Turn-Key French & Continental Market. Building a relationship with our Host is our long-term strategy.
Relying on the strong development of our Brand and Identity, backed-up by “our Easy-to-find” website, the FMI’s goal for 2010 is to develop a consistent team of 15 to 20 traders, with a total length of 90 to 120 meter linear frontage. This consistency is more than required for sustaining the development of our brand and strong relationship with our host.
This consistency will also benefit to you, the traders, as it help us reducing our (and your) costs by saving time & resources spent on getting Traders confirmation for each event.

This is why we offer competitive rate, and more especially to traders who share our view on our long-term strategy and decide to get into our Regular and Master Trader schemes.
