Scones and jam were on the menu at Lavenham’s farmers’ market on Sunday, along with a host of other food and drink from local suppliers.

Held in Lavenham Village Hall on the fourth Sunday of the month, the market attracted stalls from 37 producers.

“It was very full and busy,” said Justine Paul, who runs six farmers’ markets, including an event in Sudbury, which is held in St Peter’s on Market Hill on the last Friday of each month, from 9.30am to 2pm.
