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.
Now is the time to indulge in warming soul foods and my calendar tells me that we should make the most of cauliflower, leeks, and good old cabbage. So why not try cauliflower cheese with fried onions; creamed leeks with sausage and mash or wonderful cabbage thinly sliced, steamed and with plenty of butter and black pepper – as good as a bowl of strawberries for me. Not for you? Well, let’s try something new each month – starting with Jerusalem artichokes. Never tried? These little knobbly wonders, cooked and mashed or made into the most delicious soup are indeed a well kept secret (though their wind-inducing properties mean that you need to eat them when you don’t have visitors!) but the taste is just divine.
You will no doubt have seen the photograph recently of many of the winners of the £50 Tonbridge Loyalty Card winners since the scheme started. We are pleased to say that this included two of the three winners from Hildenborough already – so remember to always ask for your stamps when buying at the Market. Don’t forget also, that they had already previously won £10 in our own draw making £60 apiece!
The 28th February, Shrove Tuesday, will see us once again holding our Annual Pancake Races. We welcome teams from schools in the village to take part in the obstacle run and we hope that Mums and little ones together with customers, stallholders and helpers will all help to make this a really fun morning. The reward of a bespoke medal from the Mayor, Cllr Mark Rhodes and his wife, Julie, and free pancake certainly can’t be resisted!
April 4th and 11th we are having a chicken theme to the market with fun activities for kids.
We would plead with everyone who reads this to make sure you come and buy your Hi Viz waistcoat when travelling in our lanes, walking (especially where there is no pavement) cycling or riding. Ditch your inhibitions and make them trendy and be seen for your own safety and peace of mind for drivers. These are sold at the Market at a ‘no profit’ price of only £2.50 – a very sound investment.
