|About||Penshurst Farmers' Market is held on the first Saturday of each month from 9.30 until 12 noon, in Penshurst Place Visitor Car Park.|
The Times recently named Penshurst Farmers’ Market in its Top Ten markets in the UK. Set against the wonderful backdrop of Penshurst Place, our thriving market now has over 30 regular stalls providing a huge variety of fresh, local produce. Particularly popular are our fresh fish and seafood, free-range meat and game, bread, pies and deli products, homemade curries, cheese, beer and fruit juices. You’ll also find fruit and vegetables, chutneys and jams, cakes, soups, fudge, plants and fresh flowers.
Our aim is simple: we want to give customers the opportunity to buy high quality, fresh, seasonal food and drink direct from independent local producers. And when we say local, we mean local: the vast majority of our produce comes from Kent and Sussex (which means that it is grown, reared or caught here), with just one or two stallholders based in neighbouring Surrey. All of our prepared foods (pies, jams, curries, deli foods etc) are handmade locally, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.
The market is also a great place to meet, with a charity refreshment stall selling hot and cold drinks and homemade cakes, plus an ever-popular hot sausage barbecue. To make your visit easier, we have ample free parking and excellent wheelchair access.
We are very lucky to enjoy a fabulous location against the backdrop of beautiful Penshurst Place. Visit the Penshurst Place shop for gift ideas, or make a day of it and tour the historic house, gardens and adventure playground (but don’t forget a cool bag for your food shopping).
