Porthleven markets is a vibrant and popular place where customers can chat directly to the traders about the products they have for sale. There's always a friendly atmosphere and it’s wonderful to see such a variety of small businesses. Genuine thanks to everyone who has shopped locally and supported my small business by purchasing from me.

A wise person once said. "Do more of what makes you happy." I turned my hobby into my work and absolutely love what I do. When you buy something from me you can take comfort in knowing it was made with love, joy and happiness.

It’s proper that Porthleven should have a local’s market showcasing Cornish producers and artists. Pengelly’s Porthleven Gin is proud to be part of the local set of businesses

One of the best things you can do to improve your green credentials and tread lightly environmentally is to buy products locally and carefully. Purchasing your shopping at a local market not only helps communities but if more of us did it, it would help the world too

I have been trading at the Porthleven Harbour Market for several years with my business High Tide Jewellery. There is a special atmosphere about this bustling outdoor market next to the sea. Well worth a visit if you are in the area
