A weekend of Christmas shopping and fun in Faversham

9-10th December 2023

Faversham Christmas Market Weekend is taking place from the 9-10th December and it’s the perfect opportunity to pick up some fabulous Christmas gifts, decorations or produce.

There will be a wide selection of market traders across all three days from Best of Faversham, Faversham Charter and Faversham Antiques markets. So, if you’re looking for regional fresh produce, locally made arts and crafts or an unusual antique or vintage item – this is the perfect time to visit!

Delicious food and drink

If you’re looking to buy food and drink as Christmas gifts, or for something special to enjoy over the festive season, then you’ll be spoilt for choice at our Christmas Markets.  There will be a great selection of fresh produce including local meat, fruit, veg, cakes, bread and savouries.  You’ll also be able shop for chocolates, preserves and sauces or for locally produced cider and beer.

You’ll also find stalls selling pet food and accessories as well as household goods, for all those essential purchases.

Great gift ideas

Many of our stallholders will be selling items which are perfect for unusual, unique and beautiful gifts.  Such as hand printed cards, prints, illustrations and photos – many of local scenes. There will also be a terrific selection of hand crafted jewellery, glassware, ceramics and ornaments.

You’ll be able to find clothing and accessories at the markets too, including knitted hats and scarves, French clothing as well as beautiful bags.

Plants are also a great idea for a present and we’ll have the usual beautiful display of plants under the Guildhall along with stalls selling flowers, wreaths and garlands.  There will also be stalls selling handmade soaps, candles, room diffusers and toiletries, perfect for Christmas present ideas!

Our popular toy stall selling painted wooden toys will be trading as well as Toadstall Crafts with their embroidered bags and pinnies which can be personalised with the lucky recipient’s initials.

Festive music and fun

Throughout the weekend there will also be live music and entertainment including:

The very popular donkeys courtesy of Happy Endings Rescue will also be attending on Saturday and Sunday – awaiting their carrots and cuddles!  For added cuteness, The Yarn Dispensary are organising a visit from some friendly, fluffy sheep who will be located outside their shop behind The Guildhall.

Beautiful Faversham

Faversham’s historic Market Place and town centre is packed full of independent shops and cafes and a lovely place to come Christmas shopping.  So make sure you pop into our local businesses when you’re visiting the markets.  Why not treat yourself to delicious lunch or afternoon tea too!
