Farmers markets across Kent staying open with collection available

Our farmers' markets have been doing an essential job in difficult times, providing us with fresh local produce.

Though there have been changes to how the markets provide that service - some going online with local pick-ups - they are carrying on in the face of another lockdown.

The market held in the Blighs Meadows pedestrian shopping centre is well established with a variety of arts and craft stalls and runs every Saturday, including this Saturday, November 14.
