Freshly picked local produce will be on offer at the community garden’s next market on Friday 8th June, at the CRESS Pavilion, Halifax Road, Ipswich IP2 8RE, from 10am to 12.30pm.

There will also be a selection of excellent quality plants on offer, grown at our walled garden project, to spruce up your garden or windowsill.

Meanwhile, young people from Chantry Academy will be behind the serving hatch this month with a wonderful selection of cakes and goodies they have made – so come and spoil yourself and relax with your friends and neighbours over a cuppa.

Produce in its prime will include spring greens, lettuce, purple sprouting broccoli, chard, rocket leaves, and fresh herbs.

ActivSheds will be busy renovating garden furniture and making woodland crafts and items for the garden. Why not try something different and join in a carpentry taster session?

Meanwhile the garden will be open for you to wander around and enjoy. How about coming along to volunteer one day? It’s a great way of keeping fit and your reward will be a constant supply of fresh veg!

  • Parking is available in the Pavilion car park and surrounding roads.
  • The Pavilion is fully accessible with an accessible toilet.
  • Save the Date – our 10th Anniversary Big Garden Party is on
    Saturday 21st July 2018 from 11am till 3pm. Please join us!

Future 2018 CRESS markets will be held on 10 August, 14 September, 5 October – celebrating the wonderful world of fungus! There will be no market in November as we prepare for our Christmas Market on Friday 7 December 2018.
