Our producers pride themselves on the

quality of their produce and the friendliness

of the Market.  We are of all ages and from

all walks of life, but all are passionate about 

offering the best quality local produce. 

All products sold at Ipswich Country Market

are made by the members themselves in their 

own kitchens, grown in their own gardens or

crafted in their own homes.


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



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!


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.



 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


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.
