We are delighted to welcome Floppy Chicken back having thought changes to their business would mean they could no longer attend the market!  We are sorry to say goodbye to The Fruit Pig Company, Norfolk Charcuterie, Taste Collective, Castle Quail and East Dene Farm – the latter two are leaving Norfolk which is very sad.  We wish to thank them for their commitment to the market and to say good luck!

This will be the last market attended by Nelson & Norfolk Tea so stock up!

Alburgh Lamb, Bramble Cottage and Essence Foods will be returning in April
