It is one of the few events in the country dedicated to the humble potato, a mainstay of the British diet and very much part of our cultural heritage.

Organised and run entirely by volunteers from Norfolk Organic Group, Suffolk Organic Gardeners and Ipswich Organic Gardeners Group. the event attracts hundreds of people from all over East Anglia to sample local food and take part in activities like chip tasting and seed swaps.

This is a popular event with people queuing from as early as 8.30am – some to get their seed potatoes for the rest of the year.

In 2019 there was over 80+ varieties with approximately 25% of them produced organically.

Price: Admission £1.50

Location: Stonham Barns (on A1120) Stonham Asplal, Stowmarket, Suffolk, IP14 6AT
