Located in the centre of Maidstone, on Jubilee Square in front of the Town Hall.
There is ample parking in Maidstone Town Centre, including the Council-run car parks, The Mall and Fremlin Walk. The bus station is located close to Jubilee Square and provides links to numerous surrounding towns and villages.
is a great deal of history attached to this area of Maidstone where the
County Town has enjoyed a market since as far back as 1267, with the
current Lockmeadow site being purchased in 1892 for the sale of sheep,
cattle and horses at the fairs held regularly in May, June and October.
Much has changed over the years, not least of which is the diversity
and opportunity afforded to the people of Maidstone, but Maidstone
Borough Council feel that it is only right to offer the public and local
traders the opportunity to be able to visit a truly local market
offering local and Kent products.
Maidstone Farmers Market will be a market in which farmers, growers and producers from throughout the area sell their produce direct to the public. The emphasis is on freshness, quality and value for money and buying locally means that customers can ask how the product is produced and grown and at the same time give feedback to the producers.
With growing awareness of the environment and customers wanting to know where their food comes from a town centre farmers market will offer visitors to Maidstone a new way to feel good about the food that they buy.
