Porthmadog’s Local Produce Market

Just the idea of local food (and drink) is nourishment itself. To think of all the hard graft and loving care that goes into growing tasty vegetables, milking and making goats cheese or dressing freshly caught crab. Growing aronia berries and making liqueur. Cultivating shiitake mushrooms and making exotic pâtés.

Porthmadog’s local market is held on the last Saturday of each month and there must have been about 40 different stalls at the end of January.  It was good to see the baker from Blaenau Ffestiniog with his 'Kurdish Pasties' and the chocolatier who makes hand-made temptation in her Llan Ffestiniog farm house.

I made a short YouTube film asking people about their products which can be seen here
