On the 1st Saturday of each month (excluding January) Creake Abbey hosts its award winning market. 50+ stall holders come with fresh local meat including rare breed pork, Aberdeen Angus beef, chickens reared with no antibiotics, fresh vegetables, fruit and flowers in season, cheeses, cakes, macarons, tarts (savoury and sweet), pies, fudge, artisan breads, pickles, rapeseed oil, vinegars, preserves, local ales, juices and plants. A number of exceptional pre-prepared dishes are on sale all made with local ingredients (and some exotic spices!).
Held in two, newly roofed old Norfolk barns and outside by the picturesque pond with music and cookery theatre demonstrations at varying times throughout the year. Each event bursts with character and life. Support for farmers and local food is of paramount importance – please come along and sample all that we have on offer.
The market opens at 9.30am and closes at 1pm. The shops and studios at Creake Abbey are open from Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm.
