September in Cornwall: It’s ALL about the food!
September’s here and there is one thing on everybody’s mind this month, food!
This month we’re celebrating the excellent standard and huge variety of produce that can be found right here in beautiful Cornwall.
We’re very lucky to live in a county that produces such rich produce; from crab freshly caught off the coast of Newlyn to asparagus grown in the fields of Wadebridge in the north of the county, we’ve got it all.
If you’re a bit of a foodie, then Cornwall’s definitely the place for you, and there’s no better time to visit than September. There are a number of events and festivals being held that are dedicated completely to the best Cornish food, so why not head down and indulge in the best of our county’s produce. P.S There’s more than just pasties on the menu!
