Tavistock offers an abundance of independent businesses offering local and high-quality produce.  The town's commitment to showcasing and celebrating the best of West Country fare has made it a hub for food enthusiasts and a must-visit destination for those seeking a taste of Devon's rich culinary heritage. 


Tavistock's reputation as a food lover's paradise is built on the foundation of its bustling Pannier Market, which dates to the 1100s. This historic market is the epicentre of the town's local produce scene. Visitors can explore a treasure trove of fresh, locally sourced products, from seasonal fruits and vegetables to artisanal cheeses, bread, and meats. The market also offers an array of handcrafted goods, making it a one-stop destination for both foodies and souvenir hunters. 

Locally Grown Fruit & Veggies

One of the crown jewels of Tavistock's local produce is its fresh, organic, and sustainably grown vegetables. The town's fertile surroundings, with its rolling countryside and lush farmland, provide the perfect conditions for growing a wide variety of produce. The Tamar Valley, just a stone's throw away, offers fertile soil and a mild climate that allows for a diverse range of crops to flourish. From crisp apples to tender asparagus and vibrant, flavoursome tomatoes, Tavistock's local vegetables are prized for their quality and flavour. 

Delicious Dairy

Additionally, Tavistock boasts a thriving dairy industry, renowned for its award-winning cheeses and creamy dairy products. Artisan cheesemakers in the area craft a delightful array of cheeses, from the rich and tangy cheddar to the creamy blue Stilton. These delectable cheeses are a testament to the region's commitment to quality and tradition. 

Restaurants & Eateries

Tavistock's celebration of local produce extends beyond the market square, with many restaurants and eateries in town priding themselves on sourcing their ingredients locally. These establishments offer visitors the opportunity to savour the true essence of Devon on their plates, providing a farm-to-table experience that is as authentic as it is delicious. 

Tavistock's local produce scene is a testament to the town's dedication to preserving the rich agricultural traditions of the West Country. Whether you're browsing the historic Pannier Market or dining in one of the town's exceptional eateries, Tavistock's local produce is a feast for the senses, offering a taste of the region's bountiful land and the culinary expertise of its people. A visit to Tavistock is an exploration of the very essence of Devon's gastronomic heritage, making it a destination that food enthusiasts should not miss!
