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 2017 Summer Food and Craft Festival is on SUNDAY, 4 JUNE, 12 - 3.30pm, in the Village Square and St Mary's Church. Listen for the pealing of the Church Bells as our bellringers open the market and enjoy the 30+ stalls of delicious local food and drink and gorgeous handmade gifts in the square and church.

The fabulous Pennyroyal Clog dancers will take centre stage in the square and the Church is offering tower tours and the opportunity to ring a bell - as well as running the ever popular Chancel Cafe. We've got bouncy castles in the Kings Arms garden at the back - and the KA will be serving Pimms and hot dogs in the square.

You'll also have the chance to meet some of the winning scarecrows from our village competition - to see the contenders, visit our facebook page @elhamfarmersmarket, they are great fun! And don't forget to buy some raffle tickets for the chance to win: Lunch For Two at The Dog in Wingham, £50 voucher for Jackson's Fencing or a sumptious hamper of market produce and help to support our chosen charity, Play For Elham.

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

Our 2017 CHRISTMAS Food & Craft Festival is on SUNDAY, 17th December, 11 - 2.30pm. We hope to see you there too!

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.
