We’re passionate about supporting local producers. Cornwall grows, rears, catches, bakes and brews some of the best food and drink in the world, and we think that buying local and connecting with Cornish producers gives you a more enriching holiday experience. So get down to the farm shop, the local deli, the fishmongers, the cidery — wherever you’re staying, you won’t be far from fresh produce, usually far more sustainable and tastier than anything you can get in the supermarket. Buying local also means minimal food miles, less packaging, and helps ensure more money gets back into the pockets of farmers, fishermen, and all the other hard working food producers in Cornwall.
Gwithian and Hayle have two farm shops, including the brilliant Trevaskis Farm, in the surrounding area as well as delis, ice cream parlours and two popular pasty shops.
The Lizard is home to Cornwall’s largest farmers’ market, several farm shops, plus award-winning fishmongers and two of Cornwall’s best pasty makers.
Port Isaac is one of the best places in Cornwall to get your hands on fresh fish and seafood, plus there are some brilliant delis in the village and farm shops just outside.
Penzance is full of places to stock up on local food, from delis and bakeries to farm shops and weekly markets, whilst Newlyn is the place to go for fresh fish.
Arty St Ives has a vibrant foodie scene — there always seems to be a new foodie place opening in town, from delis and bakeries to gin schools and markets.
Find vineyards, gin distilleries and a cidery. Or head to the foodie hubs of Fowey, St Austell and Lostwithial for delis, fishmongers and greengrocers.
