The Unexpected Return of Wrotham Farmers Market

The sudden appearance of signs advertising “Wrotham Farmers Market” in June this year came as a surprise to most residents. Wrotham hasn’t had a market for hundreds of years, and while the idea of reviving one has sometimes come up in discussions at village dinner parties or pubs (and elsewhere on this website), it was a topic that was considered as pure fantasy by most of us.

Now that the market has been running for almost 2 months, we all hope it’s here to stay. Whether it does or not is up to us – obviously, the stalls need to make a decent income to make it worth their while, so we would strongly encourage all residents to come and support the market.

The stalls don’t just sell fresh vegetables and fruit, but a wide variety of other local produce, including cheese, meats, bread, as well as handmade chocolates, juices, jams, pastries and pies.

Where is it? – The Rose and Crown Car Park in St Mary’s Road, Wrotham, TN15 7AE
When is it? Held on the 1st and 3rd Friday every month, from 9 to 11 a.m. – the next one is on 21st August
