Supporting Norfolk coast's local producers

Our on-line directory lists a selection of local producers and local produce outlets, a summary listing also appears in the annual Norfolk Coast Guardian. Inclusion in the directory is free. Basic criteria for the local products is:

Local Products are produced sustainably, coming from and are available in the area and local outlets supply and promote local products.

NOTE: The term Area refers to the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or within approximately 10 miles of its boundary, which is shown on the active map.

How to use this directory

No directory specific search facility for entrants, however, if you know the business name then our standard search will work otherwise just select the category(s) on the active map to display a summary listing of entries. Please note that map location pointers are approximate and best to follow links to business own website for detailed directions and to check opening times where possible. 
Map search tip: deselect all then just add the categories you wish to search in

We have tried to simplify the ever increasing entries to:

Local Producers growing produce, making products

Local Produce Shops selling local produce and products

Farmers markets listing many in those around the area

Norfolk Arts and Crafts Promoting locally made craft products

This directory aims to help promote the availability of local products, by no means is it comprehensive and does not imply that businesses included are endorsed by the Norfolk Coast Partnership. However, we do encourage visitors and residents to support the local products and producers wherever you can - Why buy local products? highlights just some of the benefits this brings.

The ever increasing and changing of places to eat out at in the area with the vast majority using and promoting seasonal local produce and using local suppliers is evidence to the quality available. Please try to support those hotels, pubs, restaurants and cafes that use local produce.

Does your business need to be included

If you are a local producer, a local outlet or actively use and promote local produce then we would love to add you to our local products directory - contact us. Listing is free and straightforward if you meet the Local products or Local outlets criteria.

We do add businesses brought to our attention so if your business has been listed and you'd like to be removed please tell us. 

Remember, our website may be basic and lack the glitz but you don't have to pay a membership to be included.
