Crowds flocked to Hunstanton for the annual allotments open day.
Preserves and produce were on sale on the Cromer Road site, as the club which runs the plots behind Glebe School threw open the gates to visitors.
Hunstanton Mayor Adrian Winnington, who toured plots with allotment chairman Keith May before the prize giving, said: 'It's fantastic, there's an incredible amount of work gone in, but people obviously enjoy what they're doing, it's a lovely setting.'
Chief judge Pat Richardson said it had been a 'challenging' year for gardeners on the site, as downpours followed drought.
Allan Rowe and Angie Stray won best allotment, a Gold Award and the site's coveted Green Welly for recycling.
