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.

If you love Faversham and its markets – then our gorgeous Faversham Christmas cards are perfect for you!
We have turned our beautiful Christmas illustrations from over the years into a collection of three different Christmas cards.
You can buy them from the Faversham Visitor Information Centre at 12 Market Place, which is open seven days a week, or from the Creek Creative Gallery Shop at 1 Abbey Street, which is open Tuesdays-Sunday.
Printed on recycled paper with lovely quality envelopes, they cost £2 each or £5.50 for a set of three.
Also available are these gorgeous canvas tote bags, featuring our lovely market illustration. The bags have a gusset and are large and sturdy – so there’s plenty of room for all your shopping.
This is a small print run to get things started, so grab them while you can! They cost £10 and are available from Simmons Fruit & Veg Stall on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Or from the Visitor Information Centre, open seven days a week.
