East of Tamar, Dartmoor & Tavistock

The Tamar Valley area has a famous market gardening tradition, and our farmer's markets are all well worth a visit. Fresh, seasonal local veg, delicious cakes, buns, scones and jams, and locally reared meats are some of the foody delights to be found at our many local markets. Many of them also offer local crafts, beer, art and sculpture and all of them are fascinating places for a wander round and a chat with the stall-holders.
