The Royal William Yard Good Food Market in Plymouth has been awarded the Best Farmers’ Market in Devon Gold Award at the Taste of the West Food Awards.

Now in its fifth year, the market has gone from strength to strength, recently winning the Visit Devon Tourism Awards Gold Award.  Each month over 50 local food and drink stalls travel from across the region coming together in the stunning location of Royal William Yard to form one of the most successful food markets in Devon; it takes place on the first Sunday of every month from 10am to 3pm and is free to all.

Emily Handslip, Urban Splash, Associate Director said “I am thrilled that the market has won yet another fantastic award. Ray and the team work tremendously hard every month and they thoroughly deserve this recognition. We hope the market continues to grow and thrive in this spectacular setting.”

The next food market is on Sunday 5th June and features special seafood cookery demonstrations from Mat Norton, Head Chef of River Cottage Plymouth Canteen. The demonstrations take place at 11.00am, 12.30pm and 2.00pm.
