There will also be seasonal pumpkin themed delights in the cooking demonstration starting at 10:30am, not to mention the usual BBQ and hot drinks that are available in the cafe area.

We’re a traditional farmers market with 30 local stallholders who all live within a 30-mile radius and are predominantly food and drink producers. Including the new ‘Perfect Crumb’ bakery with dairy and lactose-free cakes. The market will be open between 9am – 1pm and is held twice a month at Ellough Airfield, Beccles, NR34 7XD.

Yet again, one lucky supporter will be walking away with a £30 hamper of market prizes in our special 50p raffle (surplus profits will be used to support market promotion).

We are sorry to announce that Dan from Real English Fruit will not be attending the market with his apples until further notice – We will have a card to be signed this weekend to send him our best wishes.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday – Taste buds at the ready!
