These are some of the stalls that will be around on the day.  There will also be great music in the walled garden.

Fakenham Country Markets

Fakenham Country Markets is run by a co-operative of 20 members. Market manager Gillian, secretary Debbie, Lesley and Esther are all regulars behind the counter… Their home- made produce is always popular, so best to get there early for the most choice.  They will be serving home-made cakes and more all day as well as Bacon Butties for breakfast from 8.00am

Beer Tent

We are pleased to say that this year the The All Day Brewing Company Company will be serving real ale, craft beers, and thirst-quenching cider in a beer tent in the walled garden at the Fakenham Community Centre on Sunday 27 August. Brewed with local ingredients of the highest quality, from our chalk-filtered mineral water to the hops harvested in our own hop garden, we truly offer a taste of Norfolk
