West Kent Project
In 2009 The West Kent leader programme agreed funding to support farmers markets in their area. This project applied to 11 farmers markets which embrace over 200 rural businesses, active as stallholders or producers.
The project covered six major areas of activity:-
redesign of the web site
market research and surveys (market ‘Health Checks‘)
helping marketing managers to market their markets
helping stallholders and producers to market their produce
running training workshops
The basic objective was to enhance the profile of farmers markets throughout Kent.
