This SATURDAY 9am – 1pm our market coincides with The Great Get Together, an event organised by the family of murdered MP Jo Cox. She said that in Britain we “have far more in common than that which divides us” and now, a year on from her death her family is asking all of us to forget our differences in a spirit of unity with 116k community events taking place across the UK. To celebrate we will be asking customers “What do you love about your local area/ community?” – Send us your answers in advance via Facebook or Twitter
WHAT’S ON AT THE MARKET – Sat 17th July.
We’re looking forward to getting our hands on delicious freshly picked local STRAWBERRIES from the Morton’s who are returning alongside our newest producers The Suffolk Goat Cheese Company and the textile artist Margaret Bacon.

Meet our ‘Producer of the Market’… Blackbird Cottage!
Blackbird cottage have been attending our market since October last year. After becoming frustrated with a lack of quality Terrines available in the area they decided to start making their own – and they are truly delicious!
They use a combination of carefully sourced top quality local meats combined with flavour-enhancing ingredients such as red wine, pink peppercorns and juniper berries (no unnecessary ingredients such as egg, bread or preservatives)
Variations of their terrines include:
Wild duck with Montmorency cherries or cranberries steeped in Cinzano
Garlic and garden herbs with red wine
Chicken breast with roasted pistachios and pink peppercorns
Wood pigeon shot through with tipsy prunes (steeped in Cinzano)
Wild boar with pistachio
Game and red wine
Venison and red wine
They’ve just launched an Exclusive Black Truffle Chicken Liver Parfait and to celebrate being producer of the month we’ll be displaying some information on how terrines are made on their behalf with plenty of tasters available for you to try them for yourselves!
See you at the Old heliport, Ellough from 9am – 1pm this Saturday.
