Home | Explore Norfolk | What’s On

There is an abundance of things to keep you and your family or friends entertained in north Norfolk, from days on the beach to discovering the wonders of the countryside.

If you are looking something a bit different, we have pulled together a collection of some of our favourite events to go to. A farmers market is a must for the best of fresh and local produce.

Monthly Farmers’ Markets

Farmer’s markets are a fantastic way to see what local, seasonal produce the area has to offer. The suppliers are always happy to chat and offer advice and samples and it’s a great way to support our hard-working farmers.
