The following producers are unable to attend the February market but will be back on the 2nd March :
Alburgh Lamb, Essers of Wisbech, Jelly Cottage Plants, Truly Rural Fudge, The Pink Partridge Cake Company, Tosier Chocolate and Good Taste.

We are sorry to say goodbye, for the moment at least, to Floppy Chicken whose business model has changed, to The Fruit Pig Company whose business has taken off to such an extent that they are struggling to attend the market and to Taste Collectiv and Bespoke Cheesecake Creations who we are sad to see go for now but hope they may return in the future.  The market has a long history of helping food producers get going and it is right that at some point, like all successful operations, they graduate to other means of distribution.  We know they never forget what the market did for them and are very fond of it.  It is our job to look for new businesses to fill the gap and to continue to bring you, our customers, the best local produce we can find.

Bramble Cottage will be returning in April.
