New plastic-free local market launching in Falmouth this spring

We’re extremely excited to be launching a new sister market to Truro Farmers Market this spring. The local producer’s market will take place on Discovery Quay in Falmouth most Fridays, starting from 19th May. The venture is being led by some of the team behind Truro Farmers Market, and we couldn’t be more excited to see our sister market get up and running!

Discovery Market will feature a wealth of local food and drink producers alongside artisan craft makers and promises to bring a vibrant, diverse, and tasty melting pot of flavours and creativity to Falmouth’s quayside each week.

We have pledged to deliver a market completely free of single use plastic; all traders will be required to use only biodegradable packaging, glass, or offer refills where possible.

It was really important to us that the market be plastic-free, especially considering the location right by the water in Falmouth. As the market grows and develops, expect to see traders thinking outside the box – using industry alternatives to show that single-use packaging can be eliminated from supply chains for good!

The Friday markets on Falmouth’s Discovery Quay will be packed with some great producers, making it easy for local people to grab their weekend supplies, and visitors to experience a colourful microcosm of the region’s food, drink, art and craft.

It will be a great gathering of positive minds and exciting finds each week – hence Discovery Market – right outside the National Maritime Museum, with convenient parking close by.

Applications from potential traders are being taken via the website www.discoverymarket.co.uk and for updates follow @discoverymarket_ on Instagram.
