Ipswich Farmers Market5


The Cornhill welcomes back this popular artisan market pn Sunday 7th April. This market always creates a real buzz in the historic centre of Ipswich as local artisan stalls will fill the area with sights and smells.

Since its inception in 2019 to galvanise the town centre and to celebrate the renewal of The Cornhill, the artisan market delivered by Suffolk Market Events in collaboration with Ipswich Borough Council continues to prove a popular date with residents and town centre visitors.

Now in its fifth year and originally set up as a farmers’ market, the event has evolved into a high-quality artisan market with up to 30 local traders offering a range of local produce, drink and street food as well as arts & crafts.

Justine Paul, owner of Suffolk Market Events; `Wow it feels a long time since we first came to the Cornhill with our banners and A boards back in 2019. Of course, since its start we had to adapt to Covid regulations as well as the challenges that all town centres have faced. However the market continues to be really popular and we love coming into the heart of the town to bring extra fun and vibrancy – there is something here for all the family and lots of delicious food to taste and special gifts to buy on the day’

There will be plenty of fresh street food to eat on the day including wood fired pizzas from Smokey Deez and New Orleans smoked meats Po’ Boys from the Nola Bayou Kitchen.

There is a great choice of pies from Hoskyn’s Deli & cheese from The Cheese & Pie Man, plus jams, pickles and chutneys from Bev’s Pantry and honey from Quinns Bees.

There a fantastic mix of cakes stalls including vegan pastries from The Norwegian Bakers, cookies from The Cookie Company, delicious brownies from the Essex Bakery, fudge from Tini’s Fudge and chunky chocolates from Tempr’d.

Wash it all down with some local ale from the Briarbank Brewery or gin from Meadow Oak Distillery plus a range of spirits from Stardust Spirits or even some Kombucha from Scoby’s Ferments

There will be local craft stalls including candles and diffusers from Hare Cottage, jewellery from Sage & Seasalt and Latino Accessories, home accessories from Maud & Vera, cards and prints from Robyn Graves Illustrations, handcrafted wooden boxes from Keadles Woodworks, fresh flowers from Leanna Morris as well as kids clothes from Tuppence Street – plus bring your four legged friends as Boo Barking Bakery will have some special treats for them as well.
