Farmers' markets in Norfolk

The look and feel of Norfolk’s food markets varies hugely from weekly council organised markets with less than 15 stands to the big monthly farmers’ markets with over thirty stall holders. What is clear is that markets are vital community events bringing producers together with customers, allowing customers to meet socially and as entertainment for families and groups.

There are many reasons why farmers’ markets are thriving. Consumer benefits are legion from food provenance, value and variety to taste and freshness as people increasingly appreciate the benefits of good, locally grown food and drink.

The range of what can be sold is far wider than can be found in a supermarket. From artisan beer to homemade baklava a market allows new products to spring up, be tested and refined within a very short space of time. The exchange between customer and farmer builds loyalty and trust, something missing from the supermarket shopping experience.

We cannot underestimate the importance of local food markets to small producers many of who have no other means of reaching their loyal customer base. These dedicated, small holders form the backbone to many markets and give customers direct access to their knowledge. Norfolk is a rural country and its farmers’ markets help preserve the rural way of life. If you haven’t visited your local market recently please make a trip soon!
