Ashford Borough Council launched an exciting farmers’ market in the Lower High Street on the first Sunday of every month excluding January, from 10am to 2pm in July 2014. Working alongside the KFMA and the Town Team, Rachel Heather took on the job to create a vibrant market that adorns the Lower High Street each month providing a platform for Local Producers to showcase their Artisan products. The market has steadily grown each month since inception and supports 20 regular stallholders and has had up to 31 at special events.

It has established a regular band of traders a list of guest traders and a whole host of repeat custom.
