Headcorn Farmers' Market

Organic And Free Range Produce At The Outdoor Monthly Market In Headcorn

Headcorn Farmers' Market from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm on every second Saturday in the month. These links for the The Kent Food Directory or the Current Kent Food Feature. If you've recently visited this outdoor market we'd welcome your feedback.

There is an excellent range range of produce, including fruit and veg, pies, organic juice, breads and much more, all local and sustainable.  The market operates at the George and Dragon Public House in the High Street.

Penny Kemp, who became a Councillor at the last election and has experience of organising events said, "Headcorn has grown enormously in the last few years and has a thriving community. We are desperately in need of a farmers" market that gives people the choice to buy local produce that has not travelled thousands of miles to reach the dinner plate.  People may be surprised to learn that the content of the average supermarket basket containing just twenty items has travelled over 100,000 miles before reaching its final destination.  This practice is not sustainable and farmers? markets are a way of helping to redress the balance."

Penny continued, "Farmers' markets directly link consumers to producers.  They encourage social interaction as well as improving diet and nutrition through access to fresh local food. Farmers' markets have become a feature of many villages throughout the UK and all indications point to increased trade for local shopkeepers."

There are over twenty farmers' markets in the county of Kent, many of which have been successfully trading for a number of years.

For anyone wishing to have a stall or help with the running of the market, please contact either Penny Kemp on 01622 890601.
