Flapjackery in the Press
Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall visit Flapjackery
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited the historic Pannier Market town of Tavistock as part of a three-day visit to Devon and Cornwall and attended the Tavistock Festival of Food and Crafts where they visited Flapjackery to select a box of 3 handmade luxury flapjacks to enjoy later. Not to be outdone, their security also picked up a box!
Sally Jenkin, joint owner of Flapjackery, said: “They were very excited and chose three to take away with them, our best-selling millionaire’s flapjack, a Summer Fruits, one of our new vegan recipes and a Bakewell Flapjack, we were delighted that they chose to visit us.”
It was the royal couple’s first visit to the town in 12 years where they found time to celebrate the recent restoration of Butchers’ Hall with local community groups and organisations.

Flapjackery in Dartmoor Magazine
“Carol and her business partner Sally Jenkin met about six years ago when Sally then managed the Tavistock Country Market that Carol joined as one of the cooperative members. Carol explained, ‘There were originally around twelve of us. We sold everything: pies, quiches, cakes, pasties – and flapjacks. ‘Then two years ago we took a long look at each other. No one was doing luxury, flavoured flapjacks beyond putting a bit of dried fruit or seeds into the mix.” Flapjackery talk to Dartmoor Magazine about how it all started.
