An event that all the local foodies are sure to love is the Anglesey Farmer’s Market! This occurs a few times of the year and we’re certain you’ll have a splendid time during your visit.
This Summer you can expect to find markets in July and August, in fact, it’s on the 3rd Saturday of every month so be sure to visit if you’re around!
At the market, you’ll find delectable treats made from locally sourced ingredients and you’ll find plenty of tasters available so you can really get a good feel for what food you might like best to take home with you!
