It might not be famous for its shopping scene but Penrith has some lovely places to experience the local produce. TransPennine Express has picked some of the favourites:
Penrith Farmers Market
Penrith has a vibrant farmers market that is located within the market square. The market offers a tempting array of seasonal produce and as well as that some local specialties. It's not a once a week market and occurs on the third Tuesday of every month.
The Toffee Shop
Going since 1910 this successful store has some of the best fudge and toffee in the area. All of the products are made on the premises with the experienced makers, what a gem. The scent of caramel will keep you around long enough until closing time, and the melt in your mouth toffee can be worth coming to Penrith for.
