Make it, bake it, grow it, sew it. There’s no better way to fall in love with local food (and more) and put your finger on the pulse of a community than finding the markets.
The Sapphire Coast is blessed with a richness of markets showcasing the wealth of produce and talent from around the region. Think wine, meat, olives and olive oil, fruit and vegetables, honey, herbs, jams and preserves, eggs, fresh flowers and plants, soaps and salves, crafts and so much more.
Markets allow buyer and seller to meet. They support the producer and put money directly into the community. They’re also sustainable and planet friendly.
Become a locavore. Buy local, eat local. Discover what’s on offer across the region.
