Our Market

The Farmers' Market in the picturesque Village Square and St Mary's Church of Elham is held as a special Food & Craft Festival event twice a year: Christmas and Summer.

Our 2018 SUMMER Food and Craft Festival is on SUNDAY, 17 JUNE, 11am - 2.00pm, in the Village Square and St Mary's Church.

This year our market falls on Fathers Day and coincides with Elham Open Gardens weekend (16/17 June) so that's three good reasons to visit our pretty village on 17 June. A peal of bells will open the market and you'll have the opportunity to tour the Church tower afterwards. The square will be packed with food and drink traders, including delicious, freshly baked pizza served from a converted horsebox. Inside the Church, the Chancel Cafe will be serving up teas, coffees, cakes and snacks and the nave will be packed with gorgeous handmade crafts and gifts. There'll be a bouncy castle and Pimms at the Kings Arms. And don't forget to take the scarecrow trail - our theme of Loose Gardeners means that a piece of fruit, veg or plant must be included in the scarecrow design. Can you spot them?

It's a festive, fun day out for all the family. We hope to see you there!

The market offers a selection of locally produced fruit and vegetables (some organic), eggs, cheese, fresh meat (organic), game, bread, cakes and pies, honey, jams, pickles, and wine. This selection varies according to season and availability.

The Farmers' Market is a not-for profit organisation run by a committee of volunteers representing different organisations in Elham. The Elham community is directly involved through the Friends Association, while Elham Gardeners have one stall where they sell their own fruit and veg, cut flowers, herbs, jams and more, all produced in the village.

After the market, make sure to visit one of our friendly pubs for some refreshments (the Kings Arms, the Rose & Crown or the Abbot's Fireside), stop for a cuppa in the Cosy Tea Rooms, or enjoy a walk through this historic village with its many listed buildings.
