Elham Farmers' Market is now Elham Food Festival and Market
OUR bi-annual Food Festivals are going from strength to strength and we want to say a huge thank you to our loyal traders and the hundreds of visitors who make these markets such a success.
SUNDAY 6th JULY, 12 - 3.30pm KFMA FARMERS MARKET EVENT: Elham Summer Food Festival and Market
We've got fingers crossed for good weather as we've planned a great day out for all the family:
30+ stalls selling delicious local food and wine, as well as gorgeous hand-made gifts and garden plants. The Kings Arms beer tent and St Mary's Church tea tent for well-deserved refreshments. A fabulous raffle to win a Three-Course Dinner for Two, with bottle of house wine, at the Abbots Fireside, and a bouncy castle for the under-11s.
With our talented local musicians to entertain you, come along and bop as you shop!
We hope you'll all be back to join us in July. In the meantime, if you'd like a stall, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

Friends of Elham Food Festival
The Food Festival is a not-for-profit organisation run by a management committee of volunteers representing different village organisations. We hope to hold it three or four times a year. The committee and other volunteers help with a number of tasks on market days, but we always need more Friends of Elham Food Festival to take a turn at putting up the bunting and help set up and take down the gazebos. Come and join us and make new friends.
Contact the market manager, Julie Woodgate on t: 01303 840044 for more details.
Elham Food Festival - delicious, nutritious and on your doorstep
Folkestone-born celebrity chef Phil Vickery has been a supporter of Elham Farmersí Market from the start, not only because of his local connection when he worked at the Rose and Crown in Elham, but also because he is passionate about English cooking, seasonality and regional food.
In his latest message of support, Phil said: "I am delighted that the market has been such a success so far and will now become a permanent feature in Elham. Congratulations to the local producers for providing such a range of high quality goods, and to your shoppers for recognising and appreciating the value of good seasonal local food, produced by people who care."
