Come and explore and find a wide range of local gifts from wood carvings and baskets to soaps, paintings, textiles, drawings and ironmongery plus much more! These will be complemented by a selection of the food producers from our award winning farmers’ market.

Pitches are booking up fast with local talent, including jeweller Catherine Downes already confirmed. We look forward to welcoming some new talent including works in wood by Christopher Hollick. Specialist nursery Jelly Cottage will be here with baskets and plants, Essers of Wisbech with trees and shrubs and Bramble Flowers with cut flowers. We are delighted to welcome back award winning chutney maker Candi Robertson of Candi’s Chutney who will join around 10 food producers offering jams and preserves, coffee, pastries and more.

We will have soft fruits in season locally grown and of course and for that summer picnic hamper there’s plenty of choice in the Creake Abbey Food Hall, with everything from farmhouse cheeses and pies to our very own smoked ham. All the Courtyard Shops at Creake Abbey will be open.

A great way to support small local producers. The shops in the Courtyard at Creake Abbey will be open and packed with treasures. The Café and Food Hall will be in full swing serving their usual fair.
