Some of the best street food on Bury market is from Yakitori Suzuki, on a Saturday,usually close to Moyses Hall. Kaori Dawson (pictured above with her daughter) cooks rolled omelettes for breakfast until about 11.15am then it's lunch with delicate little skewers of meat and vegetables, rice and miso soup. I tried the pork rib (supearibu no Nikomo) Japanese meatball (Tsukune) and the pork skewers (Kushiyaki) Kaori runs the Suzuki Supper Club so if you cannot get to the market, go for supper.

Colin's .... No, Caroline's Country Kitchen

Nipping through Stowmarket today I saw this street food van and the homemade cakes and soup caught my eye. I bought a pot of Butternut Soup and a small Apple and Blackberry Crumble to take home. Then I started chatting to the chirpy owner, Caroline.She told me that she had made the soup and the crumbles the night before. She also had a heart shaped cake and tubs of homemade rice pudding. The sign for the stall said Colin's Catering Services so I asked Caroline where Colin was. "Oh! There isn't a Colin. That's the board that came with the trailer when I bought it!"

Borough Market that is, I thought it would be jaded and expensive but was totally wrong. The best walnut and gorgonzola pasta ever (£3.50) fresh oysters shucked while you wait - next door to a Prosecco stand, scallops fried to order and mountains of other things too tasty to mention.

Chatsworth Road Market

Amazing food stalls here at Chatsworth Market every Sunday morning. I regretted my big breakfast because I couldn't eat lamb with pomegranate from the Persian stall.  Bought some lovely cheese though from this farmers son.

Would you like a stand at Church Farm Barn Christmas market?  Are you an Artisan producer? Ruth Williamson and her husband Paul are holding a Christmas Market in their barn at Church Farm, Bradfield Combust on the weekend of December 14th and 15th.  Throughout the month of December they sell their farm grown Christmas trees and homemade fir wreaths from the barn.

Ruth says "the market is undercover in our Suffolk barn, dry but may not be all that warm!  I am looking for local producers such as a breadmaker, cheese supplier or Christmas pudding maker or any food that could be good for Christmas or to give as a gift.  I am happy to consider craft makers too!  I charge £20 for the 2 days and supply a table and chair" for more details email Ruth at This email address is being protected from spambots.

A message for suffolk foodie traders

We were sent a message, we are passing it on -

Seeking traders of quality food and drink and related products for our World and Medieval Markets to be held as part of the Bury St Edmunds Food and Drink Festival on Sunday 26 and Monday 27 August 2012. We are seeking quality hot and cold foods and drinks including cheeses, meats, bakery products, olives and cooked speciality foods. I wondered if you could perhaps give this a mention on your website or in a newsletter if you have one so food producers in Suffolk can have the opportunity of being involved. More information is available at www.marketsquaregroup.com

Cookery demonstrations and talks will be held throughout both days and those purchasing food will be able to store their shopping in a chilled store. Day entry is £6 for adults and £3 for children aged 12 – 16, under 12’s are free. For more details and to buy tickets please visit www.flavoursof2012.co.uk.

Meanwhile in London...

...wherever I go I see Suffolk produce. Belly of Blythburgh pork is being roasted in the local pub, Adnams and Aspalls are everywhere. The Sunday market on Colombia Rd is selling roast turkey rolls wirth stuffing and cranberry - organic of course - and I think finally we might be seeing the end of those revolting over-iced cupcakes in favour of a nice bit of crumpet. It should be served on old Denbyware so if you've got anything like this at home - it's coming back!
