Taste the Suffolk Springtime at the Asparagus & Strawberry Fayre on Market Hill, Woodbridge

Woodbridge is celebrating the long-awaited arrival of Spring with an Asparagus & Strawberry Fayre on its superb Market Hill on Saturday 18thMay between 9am and 4pm. The Fayre will have stalls selling all kinds of local food and locally grown produce to enable locals and visitors alike to get a real flavour of the Suffolk Springtime.

The Fayre is the brain child of local gastronomic guru Ugur Vata of The Galley Restaurant in Woodbridge, David Wright of The Cake Shop Woodbridge and George Bradley from Friday Street Farm and has been brought to fruition with the support of Choose Woodbridge. All parties are passionate about top quality local produce and keen to show of all the spring flavours that Suffolk has to offer.

The team at Friday Street Farm are bringing oodles of new season asparagus & strawberries and Ugur Vata will be doing cookery demonstrations and tastings using these fabulous ingredients. Other stall holders include The Angel Public House who will be selling their award winning sausage rolls, Marybelle dairy selling their local ice-creams, The Cake Shop who will be delighting visitors with their freshly baked scones with strawberry jam and fresh asparagus tartlets to name but a few!

Chris Harrold, Choose Woodbridge Chairman, said:  “Spring has been a long time coming this year and now it’s here what better way to celebrate than with these wonderful, fresh Suffolk-grown ingredients? We’re thrilled to be supporting such a timely and tasty event.”

George Bradley of Friday Street Farm added: “The asparagus is tender and very flavoursome and the strawberries are just what you need to remind you that summer is just around the corner. It’s been a cold and soggy start the year which has made the produce a little slower to emerge than usual, but the flavour hasn’t suffered one bit!”
