Mentioned in the Domesday book and located in the heart of Faversham’s historic town centre, with it’s stilted Guildhall, town pump and medieval buildings as a backdrop, we are very proud of our market and it’s status as the oldest market in Kent.
Faversham’s Charter Market runs on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays every week, selling a range of local produce, household items, plants, collectibles and other interesting bits and pieces. We also have two monthly markets – Best of Faversham Arts, Crafts and Food Market on the first and third Saturday of the month in Preston Street and Faversham Antiques and Vintage Market is held in the Market Place and Court Street on the first Sunday of every month, except September.
We kindly ask our customers:
– not to visit the market if you are unwell or have any Covid19 symptoms
– to please follow the queue signs and maintain a 2m distance
– to use contactless credit cards where possible (although some traders still currently only take cash)
– to respect the Market’s rules which will be on display
– to return to the market at a later time if its busy when you arrive.
Our priority is, of course, to take great care of the safety of our staff, traders and customers. Keep well and stay safe.
Faversham Antiques Market Update:
Until further notice, our Antiques Markets are on hold until infection rates in Swale fall significantly. These Markets are extremely popular and attract visitors from around the South East and sometimes further afield. The Market is concerned about crowds and visitor numbers and believes it would represent a risk to go ahead.
This decision has been a very difficult one to make and we can’t wait for the Antiques & Vintage Markets to be up and running as soon as possible.
Please keep an eye on our social media for updates. Click here for Faversham Market’s Facebook page.
Stay safe and keep well.

Faversham Charter Market’s last day of 2020 will be on Tuesday 22nd December. Its first trading day of 2021 will be on Tuesday 5th January.
We wish our customers, stallholders and partners a safe and happy festive break.
