Suffolk Farmer's Markets

Vibrant colours of local produce at Suffolk farmer's markets

On offer at one of these local market events, you’ll find a fantastic selection of fresh produce including locally reared meat and poultry such as Suffolk Red Poll Beef, Sutton Hoo Chicken and Blythburgh Pork. 

If you’re staying in one of our beautiful Suffolk cottages in Snape, Southwold, Aldeburgh, Lavenham or Woodbridge, we’re sure you’ll be delighted with the choice of tantalising homemade cakes and locally reared produce available at one of the farmer’s markets nearby.

If you’re staying in one of our Lavenham cottages, do visit the farmer’s market which takes place in the village hall  on the 4th Sunday of each month.  Here you’ll find a delicious selection of fresh herbs, homemade pies, vegetables and fruit which is all sourced from within a thirty mile radius.

If you’re staying in one of our Snape or Aldeburgh cottages, a visit to Snape Maltings’ farmer’s market is a real treat. Here you’ll find a range of wonderful producers including Pump St Bakery (from Orford), Felixtowe Artisan Smokehouse, Wild Meat Company (Blaxhall), Suffolk Honey (Lowestoft), and High House Fruit Farm (Sudbourne).  For our guide on lots of other wonderful local Suffolk produce and when it's in season click here.
