Farmers’ markets are good for the environment because all food is locally produced in farms usually within a range of a few hundred miles. These markets are even more special when you consider that whatever items you purchase from a trader has been cooked, reared, or produced by them.
Sennen Farmer’s market has become more than just a spot to purchase food product, it is fast becoming a hub to socialize. The market provides a wide collection of indigenously baked bread, fresh fruits, vegetables and meat. It doesn’t end there! Cooked meats and processed products like cheese are also available. The yummy treats you can grab there are just delightful! My personal favourite is the cake. Sennen Farmers’ market also provides lovely crafts such as jewellery, cards and carvings.
