Renowned Local Produce

The Cotswolds is a foodie’s paradise: anything and everything is grown and raised on these vast, green expanses. The buying and selling of organic foods has long been a tradition within the villages, and the successes of the Cotswolds’ farmers’ markets has now led to a national trend in ‘localised ethical shopping’, a movement spearheaded by the Prince of Wales, who has his own market shop in Tetbury, and who firmly believes strong local markets create a strong local economy and a vibrant society.
