Trade

Having established a reputation as a quality agricultural show true to its rural roots, we welcome compatible exhibitors catering for the country lifestyle who will add to the value of the show.
Options to exhibit are either with a standalone trade stand or within one of our 2 collective marquees; The Arts and Craft Marquee (for exhibitors who either paint or photograph or make their own products), and The Food Hall (for exhibitors who produce edible products which are to be sold packaged and intended for consumption off the show ground).
The Show also offers a number of trade stand spaces within ‘Eat Street’, an area introduced in 2023 dedicated to artisan food producers to not only support British Farming and quality local produce, but to also provide our show visitors with a great selection of speciality foods.

Yum Yum Tree Fudge have been coming to the South Suffolk Show for years and we love it! Why? Because we get to produce locally and sell locally and we meet all our regular customers who are eager to try something new. We use local ingredients like sugar from around east Anglia and people appreciate buying local. This is one of the most relaxed shows you can attend and it’s a wonderful day for traders and the public. And people really come to spend and have a great time, year after year.
