Food and drink play a hugely important role in attracting - and satisfying – visitors to Wales. We pride ourselves on being able to offer some of the finest produce in the world including succulent Welsh lamb, unique artisan cheeses and refreshing homemade ciders. Whichever Great Little Place you’ve chosen, you’ll have the opportunity to sample the best of local produce.
Buying direct from the producer means cutting food miles and reducing packaging, so not only will you be getting the freshest produce you’re ever likely to buy, you’ll also be doing your bit to help the environment.
This is what the new food revolution in Wales stands for – real food produced by passionate people. But don’t just take our word for it. Read on to find out where you can join other savvy shoppers who are increasingly discovering what Wales has to offer.
