This year the festival is expecting over 90 exhibitors showcasing organic vegetables, fresh and smoked fish, rare breed meat and game, cheeses, frozen yoghurt, jams, beer, wine and lager. Nearly all of the exhibitors’ businesses are based in East Suffolk, reflecting the high quality and huge array of food and drink in the region.
The Artisan Food Trail producers/businesses that will be attending are:
