We have a whole heap of exciting festive events coming up this November and December and we will be doing a mini tour of Kent to make sure we get to see as many of you as possible before Christmas. Check out our events below and be sure to add them to your diary so you do not forget!
Our first festive event is Lenham Handmade Mid Winter Market, which is held in the beautiful Tithe Barn. The market runs 10am to 4pm on the 17th and 18th of November and is held in support of Breast Cancer Kent. It costs £2 per adult to enter and kids go free!
The following weekend (24th & 25th November), we will be travelling up to another beautiful setting, the National Trust's Sissinghurst Castle for their Festive Market. We will be located in their scenic gardens, surrounded by other local producers and crafters and the National Trust cafe and gift shop will also be open alongside the market 10:30-3 on both days.
Then we will be staying local for our next event, which will be Alkham Valley Garden Centre's Food, Craft and Christmas Fair on Saturday the 1st of December. Their summer Farmer's Market was a huge success and we sold out before the day had finished, so we are hoping for another equally busy day. The event runs from 10am to 4pm and the garden centre and tea rooms will also be open for the day. There will be a wide range of craft stalls inside but you will find us in the food marquee with other foodie stalls just outside.
And lastly, we have a trip to another famous Kent castle, Whistable Castle, for their Festive Food Festival. This event, held 10am to 4pm on Sunday the 9th of December, promises to be fun for all the family, with a fairground, live performances and a Santa's Grotto!
We will also be at our usual spot at Ashford Farmer's Market in the the Lower High Street from 10am to 2pm on the first Sunday of every month (4/11, 2/12 & 6/01). This market is full of great local produce including jams, fruit & veg, cheeses, meats and honey and there is free parking all day at the nearby Edinburgh Road car park. Plus, with it being in the High Street you can also whizz round the shops after and pick up your other Christmas gifts or hit the January sales.
