Farmers Markets in Kent
It is just amazing, how many Farmers' Markets there are in Kent.
And thanks to Dominic Knight, former landlord at the Bull Inn, we even had one in Linton - but only for a short while in 2007, as it turned out!
I have left the picture above as a memorial to a brave effort... and below are details of all the current farmers markets in Kent that we are aware of.
Every time you visit a farmers' market, you are helping to support local producers. You are buying fresh produce, often organic, grown locally and not flown in from around the world... go on, do it, you know it makes sense!
