A brand fold-out map guide showcasing Bungay’s "amazing crop" of food and drink producers and shops and eateries is to be launched this weekend.

The Bungay Food & Drink - A place of great taste guide will be officially launched at the Bungay Food and Drink Street Market on Sunday.

The inaugural food and drink market was first held in 2022 and this year's edition is much bigger with more than 70 stallholders.

The map guide has been launched by market organisers, the Bungay Events and Business Association.

The association says Bungay has an "amazing crop" of producers and traders and thanks to them the town is becoming known as a centre for good food and drink – which makes the guide very timely.

And the association says it is fitting that this weekend's market is being held in Earsham Street as it has been newly dubbed as the town’s "foodie furlong".

The guide is described as "Sharing a range of bite-size trails, recipes, fun facts, puzzles and mini-features, the free fold-out map guide celebrates and connects Bungay’s market town history with the artistry in food and drink today."

Didy Ward, chair of the Bungay Events and Business Association, said "We’ve long recognised Bungay’s importance is as a centre for lovers of good food and drink.

“Our deli, butcher, greengrocer and fishmonger here are always busy, and when pubs are shutting down in other towns, ours are thriving.

"There’s such a supportive community of first-class food and drink producers and businesses here, all sharing really important core values.”

Traders at the market will be selling a variety of street food, alcoholic drinks, sweet treats, locally grown organic vegetables as well as local rare breed meats. 

Sunday's market runs from 9am to 4pm.
