Sadly we have had to postpone the farmers market due to take place in West Malling this coming Sunday 24th January. It was a very difficult decision to make but came following requests by the Local Enforcement Officer to not encourage more visitors to West Malling High Street.
COVID safety measures are in place within the farmers market with marshalls, one way system, restricting the number of people within the farmers market at any one time etc., and these have all been observed by local enforcement officer at previous farmers markets it is the increase in numbers of visitors to West Malling for the farmers market which is the Local Authorities concern.
A number of the cafes in West Malling are offering take away services and queues are regularly causing problems in the town.
The situation will be reviewed in the coming weeks in discussion with the Parish Council and Local Authority.
Some of the West Malling Farmers Market stallholders will be offering a delivery service including:
Naked and Ready
Far Acre Farm
The French Deli
St Apple Hurst Roast
We hope that you respect the difficult decision that we have had to make and we hope the farmers market returns soon.
Stay safe and take care
