Meals From
the Market


Welcome to Meals from the Market


This is where you will find our recipes for tasty dishes – easy lunches, fancy brunches and family dinners – made with ingredients bought from Llanelli Market, along with the odd store-cupboard staple.

Whether we need something cheap and easy or a more sophisticated and impressive meal, we can buy many of our ingredients from our local suppliers.

Our local market isn’t just a place to buy provisions. People go there to connect with others, and alongside the tasty morsels sold at each stall you’ll be welcomed with friendly smiles and cheerful chat from the owners and workers.

Ann and Linda from Penclawdd Cockles and Laverbread – a family business of more than 40 years – sell local cockles and mussels along with a variety of other shellfish, and of course their speciality – laverbread.

Seward’s of Llanelli – the town’s oldest independent fruit and vegetable seller – has to be the most joyful greengrocers in town!

Mr & Mrs H Phillips will provide you with their own-grown seasonal produce, and there is a plentiful supply of good quality meat at Bwyd Blasus, including their wonderful home-cured bacon, available in three different flavours.

Of course, there are many other food stalls in the market – why not pay them a visit and spend some time browsing and chatting?
