In the heart of Sudbury - stalls will fill Market Hill and St Peter's Church plus an area outside the town hall.

What?

Almost 60 stalls will fill Market Hill, selling a range of top quality produce including Lavenham Red Poll beef, culinary, medicinal and aromatic fresh herbs, wild boar sausage rolls, locally-grown summer soft fruits, award-winning sourdoughs, freshly baked cakes and locally distilled gins and vodkas. There will also be a number of quirky street food vans and horseboxes selling everything from mac and cheese to Uruguayan empanadas, buttermilk fried chicken and chilled prosecco.

Inside the church you'll discover a selection of local stallholders selling brownies, macaroons and scones, Oriental sauces, Suffolk wines, local apple juices, Norwegian pastries, Suffolk biltong and locally shot venison.

The main kitchen theatre is back with a line up of some of Suffolk's very best chefs, from award-winning baker, Will Wooster to Greig Young, head chef of The Northgate, and Fiona Murphy of Moo Moo Cakes. The award-winning team from Hollow Trees Farm butchery will be running a butchery masterclass too.

What is new?

This year, due to popular demand, the event has been extended to run until 6pm, with vital sponsorship from Hollow Trees Farm and Ernest Doe, creating a new area outside the Town Hall featuring a small farm space, a huge tractor, a second kitchen theatre area run by the ICE Chefs and KSL Kitchens, a flower stall and a selection of street food trucks.

Justine Paul said: “Having financial support and investment from such successful and well regarded local businesses has a huge impact on this event. Essentially it means it can remain free for all to attend and we believe that offering such a top quality event, free of charge to the community, is what makes this food festival different to any other.”
