Events

Sat 06/05/2017 May's guest stalls

We have two guest stalls this month:

-         -  Wild at Heart with their award-winning sauces, condiments and preserves made from traditionally wild and native fruits, shoots and leaves. Although many of their products are quite “original”, they are inspired by centuries-old ways of preserving and pairing up foods and flavours which grow in the same area.

-          - Kirsty from One in the Oven Bakehouse, who makes  doughnuts from hand-shaped 17 hour brioche, made with the finest raw ingredients.  Flavours include cherry cheesecake, mocha and lime and coconut

And Friends of Penshurst Church will also be selling ducks (plastic) for their annual duck race


Sat 03/06/2017 June's Fish Day

This month we’ll be offering tastings of simple but delicious fish dishes by cookery book writer Mary Gywnn using fish from our stallholder Paul Saxby.   We’ll also have a free fish hunt around the market for children – find all eight fish and win a yummy reward.  And Redhill Farm Estates (http://www.redhillestate.com/) will join us with their wines, including some that go especially well with fish.

Our guest stall this month is Kentish Oils, with their flavoured rape seed oils and delicious Kent Crips, made with local potatoes and flavours such as Roast Beef and Spitfire Ale, Ashmore Cheese and Onion, Smoked Chipotle Chilli and Oyster and Vinegar.


Sat 01/07/2017 July's guest stalls

Our guest stalls this month include the always welcome return of Wise Owl Cider with their bottles and kegs of dry and medium cider.  We'll also have for the first time Refined Baklava with a foretaste of summer holidays. Zehra makes this authentic Cypriot baklava with citrus syrup, and it comes with pistachios, walnuts or mixed nuts, or with an orange blossom custard filling. 

We also welcome seasonal soft fruits from New Park Farm in Groombridge, and cherries from Michael Dalloway's orchards near Robertsbridge.

Plus all our regulars, of course!

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, easy wheelchair access and dogs are encouraged.  Just follow the signs for Penshurst Place Visitors’ car park.
