The producers/stallholders are what make a farmers market and here in Kent you will find some of the very best in the country. Every producer at the farmers market takes time and effort to produce the very best of their product.
The idea of a farmers market is that you the customer can go and speak to the producer direct and ask anything at all about production methods, tastes, where it was made, what’s in the ingredients….anything at all. It is a service that can’t be given in a supermarket which in this day and age where traceability is so important it is what makes a farmers market so appealing.
Producers at our markets are wherever possible from within 30 miles of the farmers market location, further if the product can’t be sourced locally or if a local producer isn’t available to attend that particular farmers market
We try to support and encourage new producers as much as possible offering the opportunity to attend on a trial basis
Here’s a list of the products that you could find at our farmers markets:
- Fruit and vegetables
- Jams, Chutneys and Marmalades
- Plants and Herbs
- Juices and Drinks
- Cakes and Sweets
- Arts and Crafts
- Speciality Products
We try to operate our farmers markets whatever the weather but sometimes producers are not able to attend ie due to vehicle problems or staff illness etc., By contacting My Farmers Market Limited we can advise if a certain producer will be attending a particular day.
If you are a producer and would like to know more about becoming a stallholder, please see our page on this website for farmers and producers where you can register interest in any of the farmers markets that we run.
The Farmers Markets are all very different both in location and size. We have different producers attending each farmers market so if there is a particular producer you wish to visit please check which farmers market they attend.
Please feel free to contact them should you want to discuss anything or pre order something for the following farmers market.
