Street Food & Farmers Markets

Street Food & Farmers Markets

Street food isn’t just for city hipsters… the range of food available on the streets, at festivals and even on the beaches of Cornwall has really ramped up over the past few years. You could be tucking into jerk chicken, rice and peas while your pal devours a Cornish pasty, bringing a myriad of munchable delicacies together – as one thing’s for sure the Cornish love to eat.

While you might not find a pop-up van on every street corner here, throughout the week there are plenty of understated food trucks, converted horse boxes and motorised vehicles serving up the goods to hungry inhabitants.

More commonly known in these parts is the modest farmers market, which crop up (pun totally intended) across the county. For produce straight from the farm and into your hands, farmers markets are a true Cornish experience. You’ll get chance to meet the farmers, soak up the atmosphere of locals coming together, and take home a lovingly homemade jam or chutney. The food choices are vast and vary from stall to stall, but you’re never far from a local meat supplier or fisherman here. Or perhaps you’ll want something a little stronger to see you through the lonely nights when you’re not in beautiful Cornwall.

In Cornwall a lot of food events are seasonal with times varying, the Great Cornwall Guide will keep you up to date so that your tummies stay full.
