East Anglia Potato Day
The East Anglia Potato Day is an annual event that has been established since 1996.
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, eager to explore trade and craft stands, sample local food and take part in activities like chip tasting and seed potato 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 2018 there were over 80+ potato varieties with approximately 25% of them produced organically.
There will be:
- Seed potatoes are sold per tuber at 17p each
- Chip tasting
- Seedswap (bring seeds to swap)
Many people return year after year but we welcome new visitors and regulars alike to this unique event. We look forward to seeing you at Stonham Barns in beautiful Suffolk.
