Welcome Producers Champions Trails Recipes
Just a taste. Watch this space for more content added regularly.

Our outstanding collection of local food and drink champions range from bakers and craft butchers to awesome wholefood shops and a deli-to-die- for; from cafés and tearooms to takeaways, pubs and restaurants – not forgetting our weekly and/or monthly artisan market stall holders. Sniff out locally roasted coffees or stone-baked pizza topped with Fen Farm’s Baron Bigod brie-style cheese; golden croissants made with down-the-road- dairy fresh butter, or get a nose for Charmat Rosé – a glass full of summer from the fruits of Flint Vineyard’s Waveney Valley slopes. Producers within just 3 miles of Bungay town centre – and a fantastic crop of award-winning producers within a 15 mile radius as ‘near neighbours’. Be sure to look out for their delicious, carefully created, low-food-mile products on Bungay’s shop shelves, baked with love into favourite foods and on café, restaurant, pub and takeaway menus throughout the town.
