EVENT DESCRIPTION

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 was over 80+ varieties with approximately 25% of them produced organically.

Seed potatoes are sold per tuber at 17p each
