Ashford’s monthly Farmers’ Market launched in the town centre on Sunday 6th July 2014. It has once again been placed in the top 10 farmers Markets in Kent 2016. Last year it was placed in the Top 10 at only 6 months old!
Ashford Borough Council launched an exciting farmers’ market in the Lower High Street on the first Sunday of every month, 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.
Having celebrated it's 1st Birthday in July 2015 and its second Christmas Evening Market on December 21st which was the BIGGEST market to date Ashford has bloomed. It has established a regular band of traders a list of guest traders and a whole host of repeat custom. It continues to provide variety and consistency for its shoppers and a great atmosphere each month of local food, drink, music and people with the addition to a Café style centre of tables and chairs for dwellers.
July 2016 Sees the marking of their 2nd Birthday and to commemorate a Calendar will be given away to shoppers.
