TOTNES GOOD FOOD SUNDAY IS
BEST FARMERS’ MARKET IN DEVON 2012
With over 50+ fine food traders coming to Totnes on the the third Sunday of each month, the Totnes Good Food market is not only the biggest food & drink market in Devon, it is now officially the best. Food lovers from all over the region voted for the market in the Annual Devon Life Food & Drinks Awards and at a ceremony held at Sandy Park, Exeter the title of ‘Best Farmers Market in Devon’ was awarded to the TGFS.
Since the market began in June 2010 it has continued to grow in reputation and now attracts 1000s of visitors from all across the South West, as well as warranting numerous mentions in local and national newspapers and magazines.
Like all good food markets, TGFS boasts local and sustainably sourced produce as its main core: hence three-quarters of its traders come from within a 30 mile radius of Totnes. And, because the very ethos of this independent market is to offer the highest quality and variety of food to its customers, producers from further afield - north Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Cornwall - are warmly welcomed to trade every month. And complementing the fantastic range of good food on offer, you will also find some stallholders (who live and trade in the area) selling your favourite Italian, Spanish and Greek goodies!Video by Felix Woody - Music by Dave T
If variety is truly the spice of life then read on dear food-lover: every 3rd Sunday of the month you will find a fine selection of fresh game, beef, lamb, pork, goat; chicken and duck; plus organically farmed meats and poultry. Great staples such as choice local cheeses, fresh bread, chutneys, cordials and jams; delicious bakery produce including quiches, pies, pasties, cakes of every description and all things crumbly. Country wines, beers and ciders by the bottle and flagon; the freshest of veg, seasonal salads, even edible flowers; as well as elephant garlic, fresh herbs and smoked, flavoured salts. Vegetarian? You’re catered for (as well as those with gluten sensitivity). Chilli lovers? Queue here! You’re spoilt for choice. Big on fishcakes? Make your way to the Cockleshell deli stall or the shellfish bar for scallops, mussels, etc. and locally caught fish. Come early and claim your fresh-caught crab, cooked to order! Want more...? Goat’s milk chocolate truffles are to die for - try one! Dorset charcuterie, Devon pates, chorizos, olives, pure apple juice, Spanish tapas, Greek olive oil, Italian coffee and biscotti ... the list goes on.
So why not come early, to Talk Food - Taste Food - Buy Food at the Totnes Good Food Sunday Market. And with refreshments in situ at the Coffee stall and the very tastiest hot food-to-go stalls to tempt all you hungry shoppers (Thai - Veggie - Indian - Spanish - Devon Beefburgers - Caribbean ) ... you’ll see just why the TGFS market really is a foodies’ paradise!
