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.

Our 2020 SUMMER Food and Craft Festival was cancelled due to the Coriab virus. It should have been held on SUNDAY, 15 JUNE, 11am - 2.00pm, in the Village Square and St Mary's Church and would have coincided with Elham Open Gardens weekend and our Scarecrow competition so lots for all the family to enjoy. We'll have 30+ stalls selling delicious local food and drink and gorgeous handmade gifts and crafts, and you can enjoy tea, coffee and sandwiches at the Chancel Cafe in the Church, as well as tasty lunches in the Abbot's Fireside or Rose & Crown inns in the high street. The market will open with a joyous fanfare of bells from our bellringers and the Pennyroyal clogdancers will be along to entertain us, as well as local singer Dee Owen.

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.
