Rick's Shop: A chef's paradise
Yes it is another Rick Stein establishment! This shop was fun to shop around in. It was full of home furnishings and kitchen paraphenalia.
What to buy: I ended up buying two small Rick Stein cookbooks for 5 pound each and also two slate signs...Gone Fishing and Gone Surfing.
Among other items for sale were aprons, teatowels, cooking utensils, art work crockery etc.
What to pay: Prices were a little higher.

Padstow fisheries shop.: Seafood heaven!
If your looking for somewhere to pick up some fresh fish, this has to be a good place to come. All the fish is fresh straight off the boats in the harbour, so the quality is fantastic. I have had dressed crabs, prawns etc all to eat straight away, and it is all delicious. I have bought back home fish aswell and cooked which was also very good. The shop sells all your regular fish, cod etc.... your regular shellfish too, crab, lobster etc.
What to buy: My favourite produce here has to be the large king prawns... just delicious!!

Bakers (Various): Cornish Pasties
What to buy: Try a cornish pasty, delicious hot or cold, but not great on your waistline.
The pasty is a symbol of the region, and there are many variations on the recipe, made from a mixture of meat, potatoes,onion and seasoning wrapped in a bread crust.
It was originally eaten by miners, who held the pasty by its thick crust to avoid arsenic poisoning.
The Fudge Shop??: If you have a sweet tooth
Close to the dock, along the cobbled streets is the fudge shop. At least I hope it's still there. I'm sure it wasn't the only fudge shop, they sold delicious fudge cubes, chocolate, mint, caramel, strawberry...
What to buy: Fudge, as many varieties as possible
