Sat 03/12/2016 Christmas Farmers' Market

It's our magical Christmas market:

  - Penshurst Choral Society singing carols; 

  - so many delicious present ideas, like box sets of beer from Hepworth's Brewery; jams, marmalades and chutney gift packs from Sugar and Spice; fruit liqueurs from Wild Spirits of Kent; lots of nutty products from Potash Farm, and gift boxes of Pure Kent's award winning cold-pressed rape seed oil;

  - Wonderful party canape ideas to try from Wild at Heart, plus their Hedgerow Cookbook; 

  - Christmas cakes and puddings handmade by Debra, and Lara will be selling her authentic Italian fresh panettone - utterly unrelated to the mass produced versions you find in most places – and Dulce’s mince pies, family-size Pecan tarts, chocolate raspberry tarts, Christmas fruit loaves, and quiches, and macarons;

  - The chance to taste Tony and Trudy's free-range Kelly Bronze turkey, and then order your festive turkey or goose for collection just before Christmas (Thursday 22nd, 1.30-3pm);

  - Decorations from Hi Kent charity raising funds for their work for deaf and hard of hearing people;

  - Door wreaths and table decorations from Speldhurst Nursery, and Christmas trees from Penshurst Place;

  - The Fat Carrot will have a range of vegetarian and vegan main meals and desserts ideal for festive dinners, plus three flavours of luxury mince pies

  - Local authors' book signing, including Mary Gywnn (The Busy Mum's Cookbook; Back in Time for Dinner; The WI Cookbook - The First 100 Years), David Lough (No More Champagne: Churchill and His Money) and Deborah Lawrenson (300 Days of Sun; The Lantern; Sea Garden; The Art of Falling), and

  - Many more present ideas in both the Penshurst Place Gift Shop, and the Christmas Craft and Gift Market in the Village Hall (see https://www.facebook.com/PenshurstChristmasMarket/).

And we're open for an extra half an hour until 12.30pm!

Our Market

Kent Food and Drink Award's Best Farmers' Market in 2015, and named by The Times in its Top Ten markets in the UK, we have over 30 stalls offering the best local food and drink, and set against the wonderful backdrop of Penshurst Place.  It attracts a loyal following, as well as appealing to day trippers.  The stalls provide a huge variety of fresh, local and healthy produce for your everyday needs, for treats, for a picnic or as a gift.  Particularly popular are our fresh fish from Hastings and seafood from Rye; free-range meats and game; bread; deli products; three cheese stalls; beer and fruit juices.  You'll also find fruit and vegetables, chutneys and jams, cakes, eggs, honey and plants.

Enjoy a hot BBQ sausage for breakfast, or elevenses of a homemade cake and hot drink from our charity refreshment stall.

The farmers' market takes place on the 1st Saturday of every month from 9.30-noon, and has lots of free parking, and easy wheelchair access.  Just follow the signs for Penshurst Place Visitors’ car park.
