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.

Check out our gorgeous new bags and postcards 

Now available from Faversham Market 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.

Hot off the press, we have also printed these lovely postcards featuring brand new illustrations of both our Antiques Market and the Best of Faversham Market.  The drawings are by local artist Jemma McCardle.

The postcards are designed to be used as delightful notecards, in fact we think they’re beautiful enough to frame!

They’re free and will be available from many of our stalls across all three markets.
