THE VESTRY HALL
“We’re among the oldest markets in Kent and have some very talented food and craft producers. It is wonderful to be recognised for the hard work that goes into our monthly market and the work we do for the local community and charities.”

THE VILLAGE GREEN
“Never mind the usual 30 or 60-mile limit for most markets, many of our stalls are selling produce, grown or produced in and around Wye. To be recognised by Kent Life, which is dedicated to Kent produce, would be a highly prestigious recognition of our localness and village spirit.” Find out more about Wye Farmers' Market HERE>
