For the Northern waters your only relatively big shops are Roys in Wroxham, a fairly new moderate-sized Tesco in Stalham, and a small Sainsbury in Gt Yarmouth. Some provisions can be found at Potter, but apart from that you are stuck with small village stores (plus specialists like the good butchers in Wroxham and Horning).

When you come to the Broads, you come to the countyside to get away from it all. If the place was full of big shops you might as well go to a city.
However, there are quite a few supermarkets in easy reach of the river for example:
Wroxham - Roys
Stalham - Tesco
Yarmouth - Asda
Acle - Budgens
Norwich - Summerfield, Sainsburys and lots of others

Then there are smaller shops in the various villages which don't have quite the range of big supermarkets but are often better in other ways. For example:
Ludham - Throwers, Gowers butcher
Martham - Co-op
Potter Heigham - Lathams, Bridge Stores

Surely this is enough.

I found that the corner shop in Reedham (just happens to be next to the Nelson!) had everything we needed - very well stocked for a small shop.

Also in Horning there is a wonderful butcher on the common

Here Here! I like the Broads because it isn't like every other town centre - even Roys, although very large and almost a monopoly in Hoveton (but not expensive) is different somehow from the big shops round here! And some of the local shops are great - we come home with a cool-box full of meat from Massinghams in Wroxham - keeps us going for months (and reminds us of the Broads when we're eating it!).

Dont you think that is part of the holiday on the broads, that there are the small local shops. There are some excelent butchers ,bakers ect just because there are no superstores nearby

I think you get better service at the small shops than at the large supermarkets.

Can anyone recommend any good bakeries ?
