The biggest local produce market in Cornwall returns to Lemon Quay in the heart of Truro on the 9th and 10th of May. With 50 of Cornwall’s most exciting artisan food and drink producers along with some of Cornwall’s top chefs, this is a market that showcases the cream of the crop.

‘Cornwall’s flourishing food and drink industry continues to win national awards and attention,’ says Bill Lugg of Truro Farmers’ Market. ‘This unique market is all about the smaller producers that are not usually seen at most markets and who work hard to produce some of the best produce in the country.’

A fantastic variety of local food will be on offer from freshly caught local fish and crab, freshly baked bread, first of the season asparagus, locally brewed cider, ales and gin, artisan cheeses, rarebreed pork, organic lamb and beef to preserves, honey, chili sauces, charcuterie and much more. Delicious street food will also be served in a relaxed, continental atmosphere seldom seen in most markets.

To compliment the market and daily entertainments, chef demo’s will run throughout the two days, using fresh market produce prepared with skill and finesse by some of the County’s finest talent.

The market will be open on both days from 9.00am to 4.00pm. Good access, disabled facilities and dogs welcome.
