Faversham Markets

Faversham Charter Market opened gradually after the lockdown, with a minimal number of stalls selling groceries, household goods, fruit & veg and plants and comprehensive distancing measures in place.

We kindly ask our customers:
– not to visit the market if you are unwell or have any Covid19 symptoms
– to please follow the queue signs and maintain a 2m distance
– to use contactless credit cards where possible (although some traders still currently only take cash)
– to respect the Market’s rules which will be on display
– to return to the market at a later time if its busy when you arrive.

We are very carefully restarting the Market and we ask for your patience during this very usual time. Our priority is, of course, to take great care of the safety of our staff, traders and customers. We’re going to take this slow and steady  Keep well and stay safe.

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.

Faversham Markets will be holding two December Sunday Markets this year taking place on 13th and 20th December. These markets will feature a selection from Faversham Charter Market, Best of Faversham Market and Faversham Antiques & Vintage Market. Although they are in December, there will be no additional Christmas entertainment or activities. We hate to be a Scrooge, but in the current circumstances, the market cannot risk large of crowds of shoppers and visitors. However, we welcome you to visit the markets, enjoy a great selection of shopping in advance of Christmas including gifts, food, plants and household essentials. Many people will welcome the opportunity to catch up on their shopping in the outdoors whilst supporting local businesses.

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. It is renowned for the range and quality of its food and drink products and boasts a growing industry of locally made arts and crafts. The Best of Faversham art, craft & food market showcases this abundance of local talent and quality offerings.

Faversham Antiques and Vintage Market on the first Sunday of every month, except September. It is the only dedicated antiques and vintage town centre market in Kent. The market offers a wide range of vintage items including antiques, clothing, collectibles, jewellery, paintings and furniture. Many of Faversham’s lovely shops and eateries are also open. 

The majority of wares on sale at the market are products or produce within a 15 mile radius of Faversham – local things created by local people. Head along to discover traditional, local shopping at its best!
