Hildenborough Farmers' Market was started in 2008 and has grown steadily with an average of 20 stalls each week. We are able to offer a wide range of fresh local produce of high quality at competitive prices. Additional seasonal items, e.g. asparagus, soft fruit and flowers, are also available.
Our friendly team of volunteers is available at all times to lend a hand.
To complete your shopping experience visit our tea and coffee lounge for refreshment in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
What’s happening at the Market.
January is a good month for those involved in your Farmers’ Market – the two Tuesdays after Christmas are the only two weeks in the year when the Market takes a break. Mind you, there is the coming year to plan with our different events and support of both Village and other initiatives. But we will be back refreshed and raring to go on the 10th with our loyal stallholders and lovely customers.
I am sure you would like me to thank everyone involved – this includes the organising ‘Team’, our car parkers, coffee makers and clearer uppers – without all of whom we just couldn’t operate. If anyone out there can spare a little time on a Tuesday morning to join our club, we will be happy to welcome you.
Continuing the ‘thank yous’, we so enjoyed the three ladies – Viv Thomas, Jan Marshall and Barbara Holt who came at the end of November and demonstrated the most lovely Christmas table decorations and enthused us to have a go. They sold everything they made so perhaps we will try and persuade them to come again next year. And I know you would also like to extend a big ‘thank you’ to the choirs from the three schools in the village – you were delightful and we were so proud of you.
Our three friends from Leigh, Lyn Batchelor, Margaret Evans and Clare Leeson, who have been helping us and our customers with the knitting of the twiddle mitts for those suffering with dementia also deserve another mention. They have been visiting and helping us since August, and this has proved a very happy and worthwhile relationship. Thank you ladies.
The winner of the Market Voucher in the Tonbridge Loyalty Card monthly draw in November was Carol Brazel – one of our Market team who looks after everything technical. Congratulations, Carol.
We now look forward once again to a full year of bringing you wonderful food, friendship and fun and know that our stallholders will be eager to serve you with what is fresh, local and in season during the year.
To finish may I just give you a couple of notes for your new diary. We hope to have a demonstration of fish cooking on Tuesday 14th February and our renowned Pancake Races will take place on Shrove Tuesday, 28th February.
