suffolk food hall

Fabulous local produce at the Suffolk Food Hall

The Suffolk Food Hall has developed a well earn’t reputation as the ‘Champion of champions’ for local  Suffolk food.

We think this makes Suffolk Food Hall an ideal spot to visit when exploring our county staying aboard a Woodfarm Barge. Just ten mins from Onderneming and around fifteen from Twee Gebroeders.

By providing a permanent farmers market with all the convenience of a supermarket it’s not hard to see why The Countryside Alliance judged it to be the best Local Food venue in the entire UK & Ireland when they compared all the previous winners over the past ten years! Highest praise indeed.

In 2013 The National Farm Shop Association (FARMA) called Suffolk Food Hall “probably the most ambitious retail and restaurant project that any farm in the UK has undertaken”. We would agree wholeheartedly with that assessment and add that it’s probably one of the most successful too. Not only in terms of popularity but also in the way it succeeds so completely in its vision as a hub for local produce. We’re so lucky to have it right on the doorstep of our holiday cottage barges, and within easy reach of our holiday cottages at Woodfarm Barns too!

There’s plenty in the way of wonderful locally sourced Suffolk food for all tastes on offer. Including all kinds of baked goods from their scratch bakery (which operates seven days a week), a traditional style ‘carcass to customer’ butchery, a fully equipped fishmonger and a delicatessen, as well as a chocolatier, wine & beer merchant and greengrocer. What more could you want? And all under one roof too. They also have a fabulous restaurant with stunning views of the River Orwell.

You can connect with Suffolk Food Hall on Facebook and keep up to date with all the events and latest news from this fantastic local treasure. Or visit the official website for more information including opening times, etc.

So come and experience a literal ‘real taste of Suffolk’ at Suffolk Food Hall whilst you enjoy the tranquillity of Suffolk’s rivers on a Woodfarm Barge.
