Food Producers

The best locally-produced food the West Country has to offer

During the last eleven years, Padstow Christmas Festival has earned a reputation for showcasing a tempting selection of food ranging from artisan breads and cakes, chocolates, meats, cheeses, and preserves and pickles, not to mention award-winning craft beers, ciders, and locally-produced gins, rum, brandy, and vodka.

We will be hosting late night shopping and a range of community stalls in the market from 5pm on Friday 8th December.

Cornish Meadow Preserves

Cornish Meadow Preserves

Cornish Meadow Preserves produces handmade, award-winning preserves, jams, jellies, mustards and marmalades at their base in Coverack, east of the Lizard peninsula.

They made their first batch to sell at a local craft market in 1987 and are still producing preserves in the same way today: small open pans, 26 jars produced per batch, all handmade and all jars hand filled. They even print our own labels and stick them on by hand!

Da Bara Bakery

Da Bara Bakery

Da Bara Bakery hand-produces a wide range of artisan breads, continental pastries and award-winning Seville marmalade at its base on the outskirts of Truro.



Flapjackery takes the humble oat and raises it to a luxury level by adding high quality local ingredients, posh chocolate and a dash of madness (no margarine or oils) to create a range of interesting flavours in lovely large pieces. British oats, locally sourced West Country butter and Fairtrade brown sugar are some of the reasons its flapjacks taste so good.

Cornish Cheese Co. logo

Cornish Cheese Co.

Cornish Blue has been produced on the Stansfields’ farm on Bodmin Moor since 2001. At that time milk prices had collapsed and many dairy farmers were struggling to survive. In the search for a new revenue stream, Phillip and Carol Stansfield identified a gap in the market for Cornish blue cheese.

Phillip enrolled on a cheesemaking course at Cheshire College of Agriculture, turned a former bottling plant at the end of the milking parlour into a cheese production facility and Cornish Blue was on its way.

The full-flavoured sweet creamy cheese of distinctive character has been internationally recognised by a number of awards including World Cheese Awards’ champion cheese in 2010 and best blue and English cheese in 2007.

Big Pan Parties

Big Pan Parties

The team at Big Pan Parties tantalises tastebuds with gourmet street food, cooked in giant pans, specialising in a range of paellas.  All of its dishes are freshly cooked and the ingredients locally sourced, except its paella rice and spices which are imported from Spain.

Big Pan also offers an extensive range of other dishes including Indian, Malaysian, and Thai curries, chilli, and tartiflette topped with Cornish brie. It’s a party in a pan!

Cornish Gouda

The Cornish Gouda Company produces handcrafted artisan cheeses on a small family dairy farm at Lanreath in Cornwall. Using traditional techniques learnt in Holland, the family produces cheese solely from milk from its pedigree herd.

Kernow Chocolate

Kernow Chocolate is Cornwall’s largest artisan chocolate maker. Since since setting up shop in 2005, the company has developed more than 20 flavours, ranging from the chocolatey classics to the weird and wonderful.

Its chocolate factory, on the former RAF site at St Eval near Wadebridge, also boasts a shop, cafe and viewing area where visitors can watch all the chocolatiers hard at work. 

Norton Barton Artisan Food Village

Norton Barton Artisan Food Village is situated on the coast of North Cornwall and is home to some of the country’s top food producers, including Cornish Charcuterie, Popti Cornish Bakehouse, The Cornish Distilling Company and Whalesborough Cheese. We know that, for you, the quality and provenance of products is paramount. Every product has been developed, created, and presented with the utmost care. Our products are not only created to taste great but are designed to look fantastic.

Freda’s Peanut Butter

A love of peanut butter led husband and wife team, Lisa and Andrew Newsham, to search for the perfect blend. On the trip of a lifetime to New Zealand in a camper van called Freda, the couple were inspired to develop their own unbelievably tasty brand. Uniquely flavoured, deeply roasted with natural ingredients and the perfect crunch, this is peanut butter – only better.

Davidstow Cheddar

Davidstow Cheddar is made with exacting care at our multi-award winning creamery in the village of Davidstow on the north Cornish coast. Inspired by our natural surroundings and made with 100% Cornish milk, our recipe has been meticulously crafted for over 60 years to ensure every bite is never less than exquisite.

Designed to deliver a slightly crunchy texture; this is due to the formation of naturally occurring calcium lactate crystals which are found in high quality aged cheddars. These appear as tiny white spots during maturation which enhance both the character and the mouthfeel of the cheese.



As Cornwall’s first bean-to-bar chocolate maker, we have more than just one aspiration. We want to focus on making incredible chocolate (of course!) but we also want to do what we can for the planet.

By being mindful about how and where we source our ingredients, having biodegradable and recyclable packaging, and thinking about the projects we support, we’re able to build ethical credentials that speak for themselves.

From our wild gorse flowers that are picked from Cornish coastal hedgerows to our sail-shipped beans that come directly from Colombia to Falmouth, we put an emphasis on quality ingredients that are sourced sustainably.

We only use organic beans imported from single estate, family-run plantations in Venezuela, Java, Madagascar, Peru and the Dominican Republic.

From the ingredients we use to the processes we’ve developed; everything we do is done thoughtfully.
