Tonbridge FarmersMarket

Sunday 13th June and it’s a Berry Bonanza

Second Sunday of every month

Sovereign Way, Tonbridge TN9 1RG

9.30am – 1.30pm

With over 65 stalls booked in already this month, it is going to be the biggest market in Kent.

July at Tonbridge Farmers’ Market and it’s a Berry Bonanza

Gooseberries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberrys and lots of rarer berries will be available at the market & all the other markets across Kent. It’s a great time to be a berryertarian.


Tonbridge Farmers Market Voucher Draw

Let’s hope you held on to any voucher draw tickets that you were given last month. You could win £100 worth of Vouchers to spend at the market. Find out if you have won at the market after the draw at 10.30 or on any of our reminder services.


What to buy in July at Tonbridge Farmers Market

It really is berries all the way now. All our preserve producers will be frantically making jams, jellies, syrups and much more to keep the taste of summer at the market all year.

A personal plea, please don’t buy all those juicy, succulent, tasty bright red cherries before I get the chance to get to Pinetrees Farm to get myself some.

You should also find on Gary the Fish’s stall, Skate, Wild Sea-bass, Grey Mullet, Red Gurnard, & Plaice, most from day boats working out of Hastings. Also Lobsters from the Rye Bay area.

Lamb is still very good, but it’s now barbecue season so for me, being lazy, it’s burgers & sausages all the way. Don’t forget the cheese & relishes.

If you want something a bit different to up your game, while watching the game why not find Julia & Vincent from VJ Game. Not traditionally game season they will still have locally caught produce. They also make some sausages & burgers which will match any match you’re watching.

Don’t forget the beer, there’s always a good selection from Hepworths, Cider from Duddas Tun and something with a bit more spirit from Nip from the Hip.

What about brewing your own, see the guys from Moodleys.


Music at the Market

It’s their first time at the market so let’s give a big hand to Move over Dali, if all goes to plan they should be playing from 10.30-11.00 & 12.30-1.00pm.


The Market Kitchen

Lots going on at the Kitchen this month.
Matthew Kearsey-Lawson from Kent Fine Foods is doing some wonderful stuff with his own and other products.
We will also have John the Baker giving us an insight into baking. I’m sure his offerings will be very tasty.
Need a private baking lesson? …just pick up one of his business cards.
George @campervanchef will be back from his holidays so should be filled with inspiration.
George does run a catering company, so if you like what he does have a word.
A multitide of other things could happen during the day, so do stick around.


Our monthly charity stall

The market gives a free pitch to a charity each month, so please contact us if you would like to take advantage of this. These pitches are going quite quickly so do please get in touch if you are interested.

By supporting your local markets you are supporting small and micro businesses, the backbone of the economic recovery.
