Local shopping all year round

This guide shows where you can buy local food in East Suffolk towns and villages. Do use it and buy local whenever you can.

The Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival is a show-case for the amazing abundance, variety and quality of food and drink available in eastern Suffolk and beyond – but it can also be bought on a daily or weekly basis in our shops and markets. In order to help you find the best of our local food, we have listed the East Suffolk ones below. Towns or villages which have a market have an *asterisk beside them. Nineteen food markets, -115 specialist food shops and 36 villages and towns with general stores are listed. There are many more in the rest of Suffolk. Further details can be found in the following websites   www.bigbarn.co.uk, www.country-markets.co.uk, www.foodsafari.co.uk, www.thesuffolkprovidore.co.uk and www.tastesofanglia.com. Suffolk Providore has a home delivery service for local foods and the Village Grocer in Woodbridge has a mobile village shop.

Fresh produce is always good value – and much of our seasonal, traditional food and drink with a local provenance can only be found in our small shops and markets. The butchers listed below are among the best in England. They all sell high quality local meat and a wide range of cuts and products, many unavailable in the supermarket. When you buy local beef and lamb, you are helping maintain the Suffolk landscape and wildlife reserves where these animals graze.

Villages and towns with general stores

The general stores are not on the main list but are well worth a visit since they usually sell local dairy products, meat and seasonal fruit and vegetables. They include Aldeburgh, Alderton, Bredfield, Campsea Ashe, Debenham, Eyke, Felixstowe, Fressingfield, Grundisburgh, Halesworth, Hollesley, Kesgrave, Knodishall, Laxfield,Leiston, Melton, Metfield, Nacton, Orford, Otley, Peasenhall, Pettaugh, Rendlesham, Reydon, Snape, Southwold, Sproughton, Stradbroke, Stutton,Theberton, Ufford, Walberswick, Wangford, Westleton, Woodbridge and Yoxford.
