Riverside REal Food.
Real Food. Real Good.
Riverside Real Food are the people behind farmers markets in Cardiff, street food events and supporters of local food in the city. We are passionate about supporting and helping small businesses grow by creating a space for them to literally take their products to market, helping get the very best food straight from the farm, to the kitchen, to your plate.
We started as Riverside Market in 1998 and since then our passion for food has only grown much like the Riverside Market itself, leading to other markets and events across the city.
What we believe...
We have three key aims which provide the foundations of all of our work:
Supporting local businesses – we aim to give farmers, growers and producers the opportunity to trade directly with the public in the city and offer them support in getting their products quite literally to market.
Fresh Local Food – we work to increase the access to affordable, fresh, local produce within areas with limited provisions. We aim to help people become more aware of the food they are buying while also reducing food miles and unnecessary packaging. Excellent food that doesn’t cost the earth.
Excellent food for Cardiff – contributing to supporting the local food economy, regeneration and a greater sense of community within the city all while gathering some of the best food producers in South Wales for you to choose from.
