There’ll be plenty of fishies on dishes in Faversham this weekend.
The Faversham Food Festival, sponsored by the town council this year, will have a medieval flavour this year when it’s held on Friday, September 15, to Sunday, September 17.
The festival opens with fresh fish being landed by Hollowshore Fisheries from their trawler Louise on the high tide in the heart of Faversham at 9am, while local oysters will also play their part throughout the three days.
Friday night will be Fish Night from 6.30pm until dusk, with a fish supper down on the quayside and live music from 8pm.
Faversham’s market is so historic it even gets a mention in the Domesday Book. The thriving market will be open over the weekend, with local traders sellng fresh produce, artisan bread, cakes, pies and pastries, meat, fruit and vegetables, as well as crafts, herbs and plants.
Best of Faversham traders and guest food stalls will be part of the mix in East Street and there will be talks, tastings and demonstrations in the Guildhall.
Take a tour of brew through the ages with the Ale Trail, from noon, around the beers and pubs of Faversham.
There will also be a guided walk and talk about the Abbey Physic Community Garden, live jazz from 2.30pm and a medieval banquet from 8pm at the Faversham Creek Hotel Menu. On the final day, traders will set out their stall from 10am in the Market Place and Preston Street, where the medieval theme will be in evidence.
There is also a food photography competition this year, organised by the Faversham Camera Club.
