Welcome To Faversham Market

Mentioned in the Domesday book and located in the heart of Faversham’s historic town centre, with its stilted Guildhall, town pump and medieval buildings as a backdrop, we are very proud of our market and its 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 January and September.

Faversham Charter Market

The market varies during the three days with a variety of stalls offering household essentials, clothes, trinkets, fresh plants and flowers, fruit and vegetables, with many local food producers in evidence particularly on Saturdays.

Date: 2022 dates to be confirmed

The ancient town of Faversham, known as the "Market Town of Kings", with its wonderful overhanging buildings, spectacular Market place and ancient Guildhall, all take on a completely different look at Christmas time.

From the last Saturday in November until 6th January each festive season the streets are zigzagged with several miles of cables carrying thousand's of brightly coloured bulbs, shop fronts are adorned with seasonal features and illuminated Christmas trees. The centrepiece each year is the market place with a huge tree dominating the square and strings of lights reaching from it in every direction.

Organised by Faversham Christmas Lights Committee.
