A day out at Wymondham Farmers Market is a great place to meet your neighbours while you are in town. It will set you back very little and pep you up a lot. Lush, vibrant, organically grown fruit and vegetables, gluten free and vegan food, as well as a startling array of home cooked food and produce, wait to greet you when you approach the stalls of this bustling market.

Wymondham Farmers Market is a hub of fine quality foods and social gathering in the heart of South Norfolk, offering such tempting delights as seeded bread, savoury tarts and quiches from PyeBaker, puddings from Pudd’Eng, local honey, cakes and coffee. There’s something to tickle all taste buds, sweet, sour, or salty.

PyeBaker stallholder, John Grimsby, celebrated 30 years as a chef, patisserie chef and baker, certainly not a one trick pony here in this crème de la crème of markets.

In a year when Country Markets across the UK are marking the centenary of the concept, Wymondham can proudly boast it has two. One takes place at the Ex-Services’ Club every Friday and the other is housed under the Market Cross on the third Saturday of the month (9.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m.). This year, too, the Market Cross Country Market is celebrating 19 years of being a part of Wymondham Farmers’ Market.

Whatever the weather on your day out at Wymondham market, you can stop to enjoy a cup of fresh brewed coffee and a slice of delicious coffee cake at the eponymously named Coffee Cafe. Or, if it’s something savoury you’re after, drop by the Pasta Gusto stall for some home-made pasta. Not like our mamas but better.

Whether you are a resident or a visitor to this fine market town, you won’t be able to resist taking a taste of Norfolk home from here after your day out at Wymondham market.
