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 successful Summer market, we are excited to announce that our CHRISTMAS Food & Craft Festival is on SUNDAY, 12 DECEMBER, 11am - 2pm, in Elham Square and St Mary's Church. The market will be opened by our delightful local donkeys, Dorothy and Della, in all their festive finery and all our traders are looking forward to welcoming you. Santa is taking a break from his travels to join us in his vintage Shepherd's hut, there will be mulled wine  and spiced cider at the Kings Arms and warming soups and snacks at the Chancel Cafe in the Church. We have some fantastic prizes for our raffle in aid of Papyrus, a charity that works to prevent suicide in young people. So, we hope you remain safe in the meantime  - and that you will come along to enjoy our market and support our worthwhile charity in December. We look forward to seeing you then.

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.
