Welcome To Faversham Market

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.
