Where better to find the best food around than at your local Farmer’s Market? As regulars know well, the county’s markets have far more to offer than just traditional fruit, vegetables and meat. Many sell everything from fresh fish and game to a wide range of ready prepared dishes and ingredients such as pasta sauces, handmade chocolates, vegetarian dishes and wonderful cakes and breads.
The benefits of buying locally at a market are enormous! Not only will you get the chance to taste before you buy so you know exactly what you are getting but as you are buying directly from the producer, you can talk to them about how the produce was grown or made. And most will be able to give you storing and cooking tips so you can really make the most of your purchase.
Remember that because you are buying locally and seasonally, pricing is competitive with the supermarkets and often cheaper so don’t fall for the idea that markets are an expensive luxury.

Westerham Market is proud to welcome Gary and Lorraine Curd from Oakapple Farm in Yalding. The family have been market gardeners for at least three generations and sell veg and fruit at Yalding and Shipbourne markets.
Gary says “I think our soil gives our produce that special flavour missing from the sanitised, overwashed veg available in supermarkets.”
