1st & 3rd Saturdays of every month
Our popular Pendeen Farmers’ Market takes place at the Centre from 10am-1pm on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. It has become an established feature in the village with many regular shoppers from Pendeen and around the West Penwith area. Visitors love to pop in as well and we often see the same people returning year after year.
We specialise in fresh, local, affordable produce and sell home-produced free-range meat and eggs.
Pork products include home-made sausages, gammon, pork pies and bacon – there are also organic beef steak pasties, ready cooked or ready for you to bake at home.
Collier’s Choice produce Cornish cows’, goats’ and sometimes sheeps’ milk cheeses and will often have samples to try before you buy!
Penny’s Pies – handmade meat & veg pies.
Mrs Dawkins – james, pickles, chutneys
John Bosustow – pasties & pies and organic vegetables.
There is a wonderfully tasty array of baked goods – both sweet and savoury – including home-made bread, cakes, tarts, quiches, cupcakes and much more; the jams, jellies and chutneys feature seasonal ingredients including the rare Cornish Kea plum.
A local sheep farmer brings along her hand-knits made from the wool from her rare-breed, Exmoor sheep and also perennial plants & herbs while Bosavern Community Farm offers organic salad leaves, vegetables, bread and new-laid eggs.
The Centre of Pendeen is a modern building with stunning views over the fields to the coast and the wild Atlantic and it makes a pleasant indoor venue, given the unpredictability of our weather here at the western extremity of Cornwall. We have a welcoming community café on market days and both our producers and our customers tell us it is the friendliest market they know, with a true, old-fashioned Cornish community feel.
So, this is the place to visit: twice a month, throughout the year,…to meet the local farmers and producers; buy their fresh produce; have a coffee and some homemade cake and enjoy a natter with your friends or family!
Parking… we are on the roadside so parking can be tricky. There is a free car park nearby, opposite the local shop.
