Our Market

The Farmers' Market in the picturesque Village Square and St Mary's Church of Elham is held as a special Food & Craft Festival event twice a year: Christmas and Summer.

After a year of closure we are reopening on SUNDAY, 8 AUGUST, 11am - 2pm, with much fanfare. We very much hope that restrictions will have eased sufficiently to allow us to celebrate with gusto! Our Church bellringers will open the market with a joyous peal of bells and the Pennyroyal Clog Dancers promise some lively entertainment. We're lining up some fantastic prizes for our raffle and Elham Scarecrows will delight you with their characters as they lead you to the market. More news to follow shortly but please put the date in your diaries now. We hope you remain safe in the meantime and look forward to seeing you there.

The market offers a selection of locally produced fruit and vegetables (some organic), eggs, cheese, fresh meat (organic), game, bread, cakes and pies, honey, jams, pickles, and wine. This selection varies according to season and availability.

The Farmers' Market is a not-for profit organisation run by a committee of volunteers representing different organisations in Elham. The Elham community is directly involved through the Friends Association, while Elham Gardeners have one stall where they sell their own fruit and veg, cut flowers, herbs, jams and more, all produced in the village.

After the market, make sure to visit one of our friendly pubs for some refreshments (the Kings Arms, the Rose & Crown or the Abbot's Fireside), stop for a cuppa in the Cosy Tea Rooms, or enjoy a walk through this historic village with its many listed buildings.
