Norfolk’s Famous Farmers’ Markets

Farmers MarketOne of the most fertile parts of the UK, Norfolk has long been known for the quality of its meat, dairy, fruit and veg. From handmade cheeses and specialist sausages to delicious jams and plump, ripe vegetables, the county boasts a range of mouth-watering delicacies and specialities. Visitors to Norfolk can sample this outstanding produce at one of the many farmers markets that dot the county. Fun, vibrant and full of tantalising sights and smells, these markets are the perfect introduction to Norfolk’s culinary heritage.

Farmers’ markets take place in towns, villages and cities across Norfolk throughout the year. Some of the most famous markets are located in Norwich, Loddon, Creake Abbey, Poringland and Fakenham, though smaller markets and farm shops can be found throughout the county. As well as fruit, veg, meat and dairy, a lot of farmers markets also offer plants for sale and most boast a choice of food stands.

Farmers Market 2The vast majority of the produce on offer in Norfolk’s farmers’ markets is grown locally. Most markets ensure that at least 70% of the food sold is produced in Norfolk, giving visitors the chance to sample the very best ingredients the county has to offer. Fans of cheese will be spoiled for choice as Norfolk is home to some of the tastiest vintages in the country. From Binham Blue and Wighton to Wells Alpine and Warham, Norfolk boasts some of the most varied and delicious cheese made anywhere in the UK. Other products you may come across at Norfolk’s farmers’ markets include fresh, crunchy broccoli, firm, ripe tomatoes, fragrant mint and, or course, mustard. Holidaymakers who visit markets close to the sea may also come across the world famous Cromer Crab, freshly harvest samphire and mouth-watering Brancaster mussels.

Head Chef Chris Marshall & his team at the King William love working with our very own county’s produce and we try to use locally sourced meat, fruit and veg wherever possible. Not only does this allow us to produce outstanding meals for you, it also gives you the chance to try some of the best produce in the country.
