LOVE BRITISH FOOD

 

September and October see “BRITISH FOOD

FORTNIGHT” from 22 September to 7 October

and British food is what we are about at Ipswich

Country Market.  We sell local food from local

producers.  The baked goods, pickles and

preserves we sell are all made by our producers

in their own homes. 

 

As we move into October and mark the end of

British Summer time our garden produce is

coming to an end but we always have a wide

variety of genuinely home-baked goods and

preserves, home produced craft items plus

home-grown seasonal flowers and plants.

 

Cakes and preserve recipes have often been

passed down through the generations, so you

won’t find anything like them in your local

supermarket. 

 

Our producers are of all ages and from all

walks of life but we are all 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. 

 

With half term this month, why not bring the

younger members of your family along for a

treat.  You will find a warm welcome and a

real community atmosphere.

 

We offer a truly local shopping experience and a

warm welcome, so why not pop along and “Love

British food”?  You can also love British craft too

and find a large, varied range of locally handmade

items, including sewing, knitting, beadwork and a

selection of handmade cards.

 

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

you can visit us during our opening hours

(every Thursday between 10 15 and 11 30) to

discuss your requirements or you can

telephone our market manager, Janet Pearse,

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.

 

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.
