Farmers' markets are a traditional way of selling agricultural
and homemade products. These markets are renowned for
providing locally-grown and very fresh seasonal produce.
People maintain that farmers' markets
allow farmers to pick their produce at the peak of its flavour,
which preserve the nutritional value of fresh produce, and since
locally-grown produce does not travel vast distances to get to your
table, the difference in mileage helps reduce its carbon
Farmers' markets often highlight produce
grown naturally or organically, meats, handmade farmstead cheeses,
eggs and free-range poultry.
A weekly market day is a part of normal
life in villages and town squares throughout Cornwall.
