Welcome to The Bean Tree

Happily serving the people of Galway with our famous Pea & Potato Curry and our range of vegetarian food for 23 years.
We are a family owned Vegetarian food company that focuses on plant based, vegan and gluten free complete meals.

We love what we do and feel lucky that our work feels right, and that our food contributes to human sociability and community and to living life in a more environmentally and humanly respectful way.

We aim, where possible and practical, to source our raw ingredients from local and organic sources.

Deirdre & Donagh Healy

In the mid 1980’s, while living in London, Deirdre and I (Donagh) were becoming increasingly interested in vegetarian and vegan food and the arguments in favour of adopting such a diet. Along with changing our own diets we started selling our Pea & Potato Curry at Portobello Road Market.

We returned to Ireland in 1991 and after settling in Galway we set up a stall in St. Nicholas Saturday Market selling our Pea & Potato Curry, chapattis and stuffed chapattis. At that time, each Friday our domestic kitchen would be temporarily transformed into a semi-commercial kitchen to prepare and cook our food for the market.

We now work from a fully customised and HSE compliant commercial kitchen where we cook our range of vegan and vegetarian chilled and frozen vegetarian meals and confectionery.

Since 1996, when we started in St. Nicholas Market, Galway we have been selling our Madras Pea and Potato Curry (vegan and gluten free) with optional yoghurt and a selection of pickles, buttered chapattis (non-yeast, traditional Indian flat bread) and stuffed chapattis with a vegetarian filling, all ready to eat. Each Saturday we also have a selection of our other vegetarian dishes, both chilled and frozen. Check out www.galwaymarket.com to see what else our market has to offer.
