When we opened it was our mission to support and stock as much produce that is grown, roasted, blended. preserved, fermented and distilled here in Norfolk as is possible. The result, is that we stock produce from over 30 small Norfolk businesses. Many of whom you may be familiar with from visiting farmers markets across the county.

In the latter half of 2016, we launched a campaign which we called "Every product has a story" #EPHAS. This was in response to the growth of fake farm marketing employed by some large supermarkets. Behind the products, we sell you'll find local people producing great food.

Starting on 25th February 2017  we are launching Showcase Saturdays. It's the perfect opportunity to not only meet our producers but to taste & buy their produce too!

Showcase Saturdays will take place on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. We've had an excellent response from our producers, they are as keen to meet you as we're sure you are to meet them.

During the course of the year, we will showcase many producers and products we stock. We will also showcase producers and products we don't yet stock. 

We will update this page with details on who will be attending when. So why not bookmark this page, come visit us and help us support local produce.
