Our markets are the best places to pick up all our local produce. You can’t buy fresher – and know exactly where the produce came from.
A great way to find out about local produce is by visiting a local Farmer's market. Stroll around the stalls and fill your basket with home-reared beef and lamb, organic poultry, fresh lobster and crab and homemade delicacies like jams and preserves.

We also have a variety of indoor markets in many of our towns and cities. Swansea Market is the largest food market in Wales. Visitors can sample the famous Welsh cockles from the tidal Penclawdd Sands and buy locally caught fresh fish. It’s also a good place to try freshly baked welsh cakes.
