Farmer’s Market Magic
 

Allowing farmers and producers to pick the best of their crop ready at the time means:

The freshest of their seasonal produce

Unprocessed/ less chemically treated

Choicest of fare

Great and better value

Provenance of produce 

A good relationship with your local farmer’s market will always engender fantastic food on your plate.

A few markets to look out for are:

Truro farmers market (Saturdays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays)

Fifteen farmer’s market (Spring & Autumn)

St Ives farmer’s market (Thursdays)

Sennen farmer’s market (Tuesdays)

If spending a Saturday hunting for the juiciest oyster or chatting duck with the Cornish Duck Company isn’t quite doable, then the next best thing is the Cornish Food Market – local produce delivered to your door.

The farm shop & artisan producers

Seasonal legumes and often take-away lunchtime food in the local farm shop is the perfect compromise between a weekly market and online shopping. Dip in daily for the freshest food and catch up on what’s best to eat. A far more sustainable way to shop and many of them, like the Cornish Food Box and Healthy Boxes, deliver too. The artisan store put taste over everything else, the bonus being that food flavours are gluttonously good. From cheese to oil, smoked meat to fillet fish food shopping becomes a pleasure.

Perhaps the widest range of top quality products in the UK can be found locally in Cornwall. The variety of artisan produce, handmade and crafted and world renowned, award winning produce means that shopping from local markets or Cornish companies online is a sure-fire way of getting the best of what is on offer nationally. Innovative Cornish technology and processes have improved upon existing products to make them healthier, tastier and more environmentally sustainable.

For example, cold pressed rapeseed oil, once made using heated processes, is a healthier product because of the innovative cold-pressing technique. Yum!
