CREAKE ABBEY FARMERS’ MARKET – NORFOLK EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Having only recently heard about the fabulous Creake Abbey Farmers’ Market from an old friend Matt Cockin, who is now the owner of the award-winning Fruit Pig Company (www.fruitpigcompany.com), I had to pay the place a visit.  Well, you can tell that I’ve only recently moved to Norfolk because most people that I’ve spoken to have given the Market a very strong endorsement and backed up Matt’s opinion that it’s one of the finest Farmers’ Markets in the region (open on the 1st Saturday of each month apart from January).  Well, I’m now a big fan and will be returning.  In a remote and beautiful part of North Norfolk, the market is held adjacent to the stunning Creake Abbey within and amongst a collection of barns and old brick and flint buildings.  The choice of fresh, locally-sourced produce is utterly overwhelming with an incredible array of delicious gourmet foods and drinks on offer.  With a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, engaging small business owners and plenty of free samplers to get the mouth watering, this really is a great recipe for an exceptional (if high calorie) morning out.  Having spent 3 hours at the market (which felt like 30 minutes) we walked (well eventually rolled) away having enjoyed samosas, popcorn, shortbread, venison burgers, real ale and strawberry liqueur (not in that order!).  In the bags to come home were some great chilli sauces, croissants, brownies, (more) real ales and of course some of the Fruit Pig Company’s award-winning rare breed Toulouse sausages which really are worth seeking out.  Anyway, I hope that the images below provide a feel for what this outstanding example of an English Farmers’ Market has to offer and will encourage others to visit on a future Saturday.   Time to get the BBQ on…….
