Buying local in Gwithian and Hayle

Gwithian itself may be small, but it’s surprisingly well served by local shops selling fresh produce. There are two brilliant farm shops within a couple of miles of the village and its surrounds, showcasing all the very best local produce, from fish and meat to veg and deli goods. For more choice head to Hayle, just down the road, where you’ll find delis, ice cream parlours and two popular pasty shops.
