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
