We are a co-operative market selling genuinely

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.



Do you know that we sell local honey? You can

meet the beekeepers on Thursday 9th August. 

There will be honey tasting so this could be an

ideal chance for you, your children and

grandchildren to taste this pure product.  Find

out about products from the hive.  Do you

know the significance of the phrase

“sweetness and light” – ask the beekeepers. 

There will be some activities too so come and

see us and find out more…… As A A Milne wrote

“Isn’t it funny how a bear likes honey?

Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! I wonder why he does?”


Also on offer this month – Seasonal soft fruit

and vegetables, plants and cut flowers all freshly

picked.  Home cooked baking, preserves and

chutneys.  Our crafters have gift and practical

items, with cards and gift bags too.



Come and try us out – we look forward to

welcoming you soon.  We have free parking

and home baked refreshments with a free tea

or coffee on your first visit.  Where else could

you have a cheese scone or slice of cake and a

hot drink for around a pound?  We also have

bacon rolls on offer on the first Thursday of

the month for only £1.20.                                                           

 Our cooks produce real cooking without added

artificial preservatives: quiche, sausage rolls,

meat pies and other individual meals.  We bake

genuinely homemade cookies, scones, flapjacks,

bread, fruit pies, cakes and more. You can place

orders in advance for collection as you require

in the weeks to come. 


All items can be ordered in advance at the

market so you never need to be disappointed

or without your favourite food!   To order

(every Thursday between 10 15 and 11 30) to

discuss your requirements or you can

on 01473 725263.   


  Your market needs you…..  

Our logo says “Cook, craft, grow”.


 The Ipswich Country Market was established 34 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.

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……..
