Farmers’ Market

Currently social distancing measures are in force including one way systems, wider spacing for stalls both outside and inside barns and pre-orders are encouraged but not essential. 

On the 1st Saturday of each month (excluding January) Creake Abbey hosts its award winning market. 50+ stall holders come with fresh local produce including meat, fresh vegetables, fruit and flowers in season, cheeses, cakes, tartes (savoury and sweet), pies, fudge, artisan breads, pickles, rapeseed oil, vinegars, preserves, local ales, juices and plants plus much more.  A number of exceptional pre-prepared dishes are on sale all made with local ingredients (and some exotic spices!).

Recognised in 2017 by Diana Henry in The Daily Telegraph as one of “Britain’s 20 finest Farmers’ Markets”, come and see the huge range of food available with direct access to the producers themselves.

Held in two, newly roofed old Norfolk barns and outside by the picturesque pond with music and occasional cookery demonstrations.  Each market has its own vibe – tasting, samples and chatting to the stall holders is very much encouraged.  Support for farmers and local food is of paramount importance – please come along and see all that is on offer.

The market opens at 9.30am and closes at 1pm.  The Creake Abbey Café and Food Hall together with the independent shops in the Courtyard (shown above) are open daily, year round (except during Government lockdowns!) – Wednesday to Sunday from 9am (Café) and from 10am (shops) to 4pm.  Or by appointment.  Visit the Contact us page to find more information.  At the current time, the Cafe is offering a hot and cold takeaway service while the Food Hall is open as usual with freshly baked bread every day (Wed to Sun), fresh fruit and vegetables, deli counter, newspapers, frozen meals, staples, juices, wine and beer.

Farmers’ market stallholders change from month to month.  A waiting list operates for any applicants whose products double up with what is already on offer unless the existing stall holder is happy to allow a similar product to attend.  For an up to date list of who is attending at each market please visit the events pages where full details are posted monthly by event.
