Food & Drink in Crediton

Like most of the towns and villages in the Mid Devon region, Crediton is known for having a strong farming community and prides itself on producing some of the best food in Europe. Most of the products available locally are grown in and around the town and the local farms are known for their high quality meat and cheese.  

Shop local 

The regular Farmers’ Markets are a great place to pick up local food and drink, with everything from cheese, veg and artisan breads and cakes. Crediton is home to several dairies and creameries which are open to the public and offer tours as well as the chance to sample the freshest milk and cream in the region. If you like the sound of that, be sure to stop off for a Devonshire cream tea – this is one of the best places to enjoy one!  

One of the most popular events on Crediton’s calander is the Crediton Food Festival which is making a welcome return after the uncertainty of the pandemic. The event has been running since 2009 and provides an annual showcase for local food and drink producers. As well as giving you the chance to stock up on fresh, local delicacies, you can also enjoy live music and demonstrations – this is a must for foodies of all ages!

One of Devon’s oldest working brew pubs can be found nearby and the town also you’ll find cuisines from around the world, so whatever you fancy – you’ll find it here.
