Devon is a beautiful place full of rolling hills, coastal views, and some absolutely brilliant local food.
So to celebrate some of the fantastic food that comes out of Devon, we have asked our social media followers to give us some suggestions of the best people who produce local food in Devon. And we’ll be starting with:
Gibson’s Plaice, Exeter
Since 1992, Gibson’s Plaice have been providing award winning fresh fish to the people of Devon. They are listed in the Guardian’s Ultimate Guide to Britain’s Finest Independent Shops and Suppliers. They also do home delivery, so you can get fresh fish straight to your door!

Situated in the Dartmoor National Park near Chagford, Frenchbeer Farm have been producing Traditional Christmas Turkeys for the last 30 years, alongside hill beef and lamb. They supply their meat to farm shops and butchers all over Devon, as well as directly to your door.
Local Lamb Box, Mid Devon
Local Lamb Box are a supplier of grass reared lamb and mutton to local carvery restaurants, pubs and also to your door! If you fancy having a roast this Sunday, I would definitely recommend getting some lamb from them!
Oliver’s Bakery, Exeter
Oliver’s Bakery are an independent family bakery situated in the middle of Crediton High Street. They have been providing the locals with a tempting array of delicious handmade products for the last 10 years, and offer a wide range of bread, savouries, cakes and confectionery products, as well as personalised celebration cakes and beautiful wedding cakes.
Grocer on the Green, Exeter
The Grocer on the Green has been highly-sought after for the fresh local fruit and veg they bring to Exeter. Next time you are in Exeter, head to Magdalen road for a healthy bite to eat.
Colleton Red Ruby Devon Beef, Chulmleigh
It is certainly true that Red Ruby Devon Beef is probably the best beef you can buy!
Grass fed Red Ruby Devon beef simply can’t be beaten for marbling, texture, flavour and tenderness. The balance of fat and meat is a vital factor in flavour. The Red Ruby Devon naturally lays down intra-muscular fat in the meat which produces wonderful marbled beef.
Blackwell’s Pasties, Bideford
The multi award winning pasty makers create some of the tastiest pasties in Devon! They take immense pride in producing only quality home-made produce, and rightly so!
Melchior Chocolates, South Molton
Melchior Chocolates are luxury products handmade by internationally renowned Swiss trained chocolatier, Carlo Melchior. They have been sending chocolates all over the world for 25 years and very carefully pack your chocolates to ensure they will arrive safely, in prime condition.
Orchard Hen Farm, Beaworthy
Orchard Hen Farm produce some of the best eggs and meats in Devon! They produce top local products and work with other local producers to create other local products. They also do fudge!
East & West Bakery, Barnstaple
