Devon

The Tamar Valley area has a famous market gardening tradition, and our farmer's markets are all well worth a visit. Fresh, seasonal local veg, delicious cakes, buns, scones and jams, and locally reared meats are some of the foody delights to be found at our many local markets. Many of them also offer local crafts, beer, art and sculpture and all of them are fascinating places for a wander round and a chat with the stall-holders.

Tamar Grow Local

Tamar Grow Local (TGL) is a 'not for profit' Community Interest Company (CIC) set up on co-operative principles for the benefit of the community.  This structure allows trading and has the ability to create a number of more specialist co-operative ventures under its umbrella to meet demand. The area covered is the Tamar Valley, which includes the market towns of Tavistock, Launceston, Callington and Saltash.

Our activities focus on three main areas:

Tavistock Pannier Market

Nestled behind the Town Hall, and just off the busy high street, there is a shoppers' paradise and one of the hidden gems of Tavistock.  In the centre of this beautiful pedestrianised area you will find the historic Pannier Market surrounded by some fantastic independent shops and cafes.  Inside the Market building itself you can discover a wide range of traders, artists and crafts people offering a personal service with quality goods at competitive prices.

Hotel Endsleigh Gardens

It’s Little Wonder

that the Duke of Bedford, who two centuries ago owned a third of Devon, chose this spot for his hunting and fishing lodge. Overlooking the River Tamar and beyond into Cornwall, Endsleigh, now owned by Olga Polizzi, is set in 108 acres of gardens, woodlands, follies and grottos created by Humphrey Repton.

Designed 200 years ago this was one of Humphry Repton’s last commissions and brings together a multitude of landscaping elements for which Repton was renowned.
