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 2018 CHRISTMAS Food and Craft Festival is on SUNDAY, 16 DECEMBER, 11am - 2.00pm, in the Village Square and St Mary's Church. Please put the date in your diaries as Santa is back in his 100-year-old Shepherd's Hut and Mrs Santa (actor Pam Ferris) will ready to welcome well behaved children from her vintage sleigh.

We have over 40 stalls selling delicious local food and drink and gorgeous handmade crafts and gifts, as well as roast chestnuts, mulled wine and the ever-popular Chancel Cafe. And don't forget to enter our fabulous raffle to help local charity, the Fifth Trust, to buy a much-needed van.

You can win:

* A day return P&O crossing to Calais for a car and up to nine passengers

* A voucher for a meal at village inn, the Rose & Crown

* £15 voucher to spend at Gatehouse Farm - or on their stall at the market

* A bulging market produce hamper

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

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.
