Saturday September 16th

a busy day throughout the town !

Faversham’s regular market is supplemented by a host of food stalls and tastings, demonstrations, and talks in the Guildhall.

Faversham has had a Charter Market for over 900 years and one of the oldest in the country, it was mentioned in the Domesday Book 1086. The market thrives with traders selling fresh produce, artisan bread, cakes, pies and pastries, meat, fruit and vegetables and local crafts, herbs, and plants.

On the Saturday of the Food Festival, the traditional Saturday Charter Market will be supplemented with Best of Faversham traders and guest food stalls, as well as various talks, tastings and demonstrations organised by Taste Faversham in the Guildhall. There will be talks on food photography,
