Our update section –

This is where we will notify you if we ever have to

cancel the market or to inform you of special

activities we will be having, such as taster days….

so keep an eye on the website.

 

 

Again, NO MARKET ON 8 JUNE, as the hall will

be used for the General Election.

 

 

Ipswich Country Market is 33 years young this

May and two of our members have been baking

right from the start!  Originally, we were called

a Women’s Institute market and our skills are

based on those traditions and high standards.  

Imagine how good our produce is with all that

experience! 

 

We are part of a wider network of about 300

Country Markets across England, Wales and the

Channel Islands which have been selling

homemade baked goods, preserves, garden

grown fruit and vegetables, plants and

handmade crafts for more than 90 years!

 

 

 

Remember our crafters have many tempting gift

ideas that you won’t find on the high street.

Babies to ladies accessories and practical gifts,

knitwear and sewing, beadwork and cards with

designs unique to our producers.  We welcome

commissions too.

 

We are more than happy to tell you what’s in

our food; in fact, we are proud to do so!  You

can ask us what’s in our recipes, whether you

want to check for food allergens or know how

something is made.

 

We pride ourselves on personal service.  So

remember, we can make cakes for any special

occasion – come and have a chat with us.

 

Your market needs you…..  

Our logo says “Cook, craft, grow”.

Our customers appreciate home made and

home grown items and we would welcome new

members to fulfil this need.  If you would like to

join our team, please get in touch.  

 

Call in and make yourself known – we look

forward to meeting you.

 

All items can be ordered in advance so that you

never need to be disappointed or without your

favourite food.

 

Gluten free products are available.  These are

proving very popular, so come and buy some.

You can order gluten free products too.

 

 The Ipswich Country Market was established 33 years ago.  

It is the ideal place to buy freshly made home baked sweet and

savoury dishes. 

Throughout the year there is a range of cakes, buns and

biscuits along with breads, pies and an assortment of

meat dishes.  

There are seasonal items of baking available too.

 

We also have a wide variety of jams, marmalades,

chutneys, pickles and honey.  

We now offer a range of gluten-free

products.  Come and meet the producer and find out more.

 

Reduce your food miles –

all of our food is freshly made locally and contains no

preservatives.  

All our producers who cook for the Country Market

have food safety training and our hygiene standards

are second to none.

We offer fruit and vegetables in season,

along with plants and flowers.

 

There is always a wide selection of beautiful

hand made crafts, ranging from jewellery to knitwear,

modern fashion bags to hand made greetings cards –

you will always be able to find a special gift.

Why not take advantage of our hamper service?  

Just tell us what you would like and we will make up

a hamper to your specific requirements,

making this the ideal gift for family and friends.  

 

Each week you can place an order to reserve your choice

of products for collection at the following week’s

Country Market.

Enjoy a friendly drink and chat.  

We serve teas, coffees, soft drinks and cakes

during the market so you have the chance

to chat to the producers as well as friends old and new.  

On the first Thursday of each month we have bacon rolls

on sale too.  New items keep appearing from the kitchen.  

Be the first to try what come next……..

 

Did you know that you can host a Country Market

at your event?  If you are organising an event,

why not invite us to come along and set up

a Country Market for your visitors. 

 

We look forward to seeing you and your friends one Thursday

morning soon.
