An excellent farmers market, well worth a special visit. It is generally accepted by most farmers' markets that stall holders must have grown, bred, caught, pickled, brewed or baked the goods themselves. Their main emphasis is to help local producers and processors to sell their goods directly to the public, near their source of origin.
The selection of goods available will vary with the season and location. However, you are likely to find a delicious selection of vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs, bread and cakes, fruit juices and dairy products.
There is generally a stall selling the excellent, award-winning, cheese made by Nantybwla - these are based on variants of Caerphilly; plus another offering organic vegetables from Ty Mawr Organics of Abergavenny. While excellent artisan bread is offered by the Caroline Bread Company.
