The New Bury St Edmunds Farmers' Market
The best things come to those who wait and that certainly is the case for the people of Bury St Edmunds who, after many years of waiting, are about to have their very own, monthly farmers market.
As the owner of Suffolk Market Events, I already run a number of top quality farmers’ markets in the region including the award winning Lavenham farmers’ market, and I am delighted that, after many years of discussions with the council, we now have the green light for a regular farmers’ market to be held in the centre of Bury St Edmunds.
At Suffolk Market Events we work with genuine local, small scale producers and, through our farmers’ markets we provide a sustainable, low cost platform for these small scale enterprises to sell their products. We care about the provenance of our food. Everything that is sold in our markets has been produced by the person who is selling and nothing will have travelled further than fifty miles to be at the event. We don’t do mass produced junk food.
So who will you find at our first farmers’ market in Bury St Edmunds on March 12th? Well, bring a decent sized shopping bag because The Traverse is going to be housing over twenty five stalls!
To give you a taster, confirmed traders include award winning Truly Traceable Pies run by Steve and Lynn Tricker who pride themselves on being able to literally trace back and identify the animals that were the source of all of the pies and sausage rolls on their stall – a true example of Field to Fork.
Ian Hart of the Beehouse Honey Company will be with us too and he’ll be selling honey produced by Bury St Edmunds bees, you can’t get more local than that!
Fresh bread, including a newly created Bury Loaf will be provided by Will Wooster of Bardwell. Will is one of Suffolk’s hottest new talents and has recently started supplying Le Gavroche with his sourdough – if it’s good enough for Michel Roux….
We’ll have amazing chorizo and salamis from another fantastic new Suffolk food business, The New England Boar Company and gorgeous, locally grown veg from Newbourne Farm plus a whole line up of surprises!
I can’t wait to get this fabulous new farmers’ market up and running. Bury St Edmunds has always demonstrated the finest traditions of an authentic market town and now there is another reason for visitors to come to Bury on a Sunday!
So, we’ll see you on Sunday March 12th, on The Traverse in the centre of town from 10am until 4pm and thereafter on the second Sunday of every month.
