Two new artisan producers join the market this Sunday on The Cornhill.

The county town sees the return of its monthly farmers market on Sunday and there are two new exciting additions to this thriving market. So with the message that transport concerns may disrupt the supply chain, it is great to know that the great local fresh food will be readily available at the farmer’s market.

New Artisan baker Harvey & Co are joining the farmers market on the Cornhill, travelling down from their base up the road in Woodbridge. “I am passionate about bringing real naturally leavened breads to local people so being part of the farmers market makes perfect sense to me’ stated founder Harvey Allen.

Harvey & Co will be bringing a selection of white and brown sourdough, French style baguettes and more ‘traditional’ tin loaves. The Harvey & Co sourdough is made entirely from natural and organic ingredients sourced from the very best farmers and millers East Anglia has to offer. Grown in Halesworth and milled less than 6 miles at the Historic Woodbridge Tide Mill – Harvey’s choice of flour is all about supporting the local farming and baking industries – whilst never compromising the quality of the end product. One of the original `founding fathers’ of the farmers market, Poppies Care Farm is now focussing on their work at the farm but we are delighted that joining the market from this week is Alex Horne’s Essex Allotment which is a four-season market garden producing the highest quality produce through intensive, small-scale farming. `Alex’s aim is to make organic, local, sustainable produce readily available to everyone in his local area and we are absolutely delighted to be welcoming him to Ipswich’ stated Justine Paul founder of Suffolk Market Events which runs the farmers market. All the produce is organic and therefore totally free from any chemicals and pesticides and this Sunday you will find a great range of seasonal produce including courgettes, lettuces, tomatoes, carrots, chillis, green beans, beetroot, fresh herbs and much more

The Ipswich Farmers’ Market will be back on the Cornhill on Sunday 3rd October 2021 from 10am – 2pm


Sudbury Farmers Market – back on Friday

Over 25 stalls will line up down Market Hill on Friday with a wonderful selection of great local food and drink.

All watched over by Thomas Gainsborough, we will see the return of Alex Horne’s local vegetables as well as favourites including Compleat’s homemade pies and regional cheeses, Wigborough Meats, gluten free cakes from Hopwell Bakery and more sweet options from Alex May Artisan Bakery. Tensheds brings traditional breads and sourdoughs plus jams and chutneys from The Jam Shed. Thirsty? then head for Craft ales from Roughacre Brewery and gin from Dalham Mill plus many many more.

See you on Friday from 9.30am till 2pm

Piglet Heaven!

Yesterday I spent the morning doing one of my favourite things and something that I barely get time to do these days. I spent a couple of hours visiting one of our fantastic producers on their farm and meeting their amazing pigs (and anyone who knows me, knows how much I love a piglet!)

Running a small business has so many huge benefits but as that business grows,and you spin more and more plates, you often find that the things you loved, which sit at the ❤ of your business, never get your time anymore. And so this morning was one of the best mornings I have had for ages. Greenacres Smallholding is owned and run by Jo Henderson. She started trading with Suffolk Market Events in 2018 when she first attended her first ever market at Sudbury Farmers Market. Her passion shone through from the moment I met her. Her determination to encourage people to return to eating good old fashioned cuts of pork, including the offal and trotters, has never waivered and her customer base has grown constantly as a result. Spending time meeting her gorgeous pigs was special.

Come and meet Jo this Sunday at Ipswich Farmers Market where she trades every month with us outside on The Cornhill, IP1 1DH. The market starts at 10am til 2pm and features over 20 of the very best local producers.
