Welcome to My Farmers Market website

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported the farmers markets over the last couple of years.  

We’re now in to our 24th year of supporting farmers markets in Kent and our reasons for being so committed to this remain the same as back in 2000 – here’s some of the benefits of farmers markets:

  • Reduces environmental impacts – reduces food miles
  • Makes local foods available
  • Awareness of farming, seasonality
  • Fresher, locally grown and locally produced foods available
  • Social – improves community spirits
  • Self help for local and small farmers, growers,  brewers and many small local businesses setting up
  • Can be self sustaining
  • Links with many climate change objectives

With this in mind in 2022 our own small business My Farmers Market undertook an audit of our carbon emissions to produce our own Carbon Footprint.  We have also committed to reduce our emissions by joining the SME Climate Hub

We are proud to confirm that all of our markets are Accredited as Real Farmers Markets by the Farm Retail Association (FRA).  Certification identifies genuine farmers’ markets where customers can buy local produce direct from local farmers, growers and producers using locally grown and raised ingredients where possible.

All our farmers markets are held out doors and we continue to have in place certain measures at our Farmers Markets which include hand sanitizing stations and contactless card payment options from a number of stallholders.

Overview of our current farmers markets operating:

Here’s an update on each farmers market:

Hall Place Bexley Farmers Market

Hall Place Bexley Farmers Market takes place on the 1st Sunday of the month between 10 and 2 within the grounds of Hall Place, Bourne Road, Bexley DA5 1PQ.  The Farmers Market has been running since 2012 and takes place on the hard standing area opposite the Visitors Centre/The Shop and also on the grassed area which runs alongside the courtyard area. Including the grassed area for use by the farmers market. This means more stallholders can attend and more space is available for customers too.  The Farmers Market offers a lovely range of locally produced items including seasonal fruit/veg, beers, game, fish and more.

The next date for Hall Place Bexley Farmers Market will be Sunday 2nd June 2024 between 10am and 2pm

Lenham Country Market takes place on the 2nd Sunday of the month 9 – 1 in the Village Square, Lenham, ME17 2PQ.  The Market has been running since 2000 and offers a lovely selection of food, drink and some craft – in recent years the focus has moved more to the locally produced food and drink stalls however, retains its original name as a Country Market.

Back in the Summer 2022 Lenham Country Market was filmed for the BBC1 programme The Farmers Country Showdown.

Chislehurst Farmers Market

Chislehurst Farmers Market was started in June 2011 at the request of the Chislehurst Town Centre Management Group.

The Farmers Market which is held on the 3rd Sunday of the month between 10 and 2 moved to its new location of Hornbrook House Car Park, High Street, Chislehurst BR7 5AB just opposite Chislehurst Common in October 2012. The new location provided a much larger space for the farmers market which has now grown in size.

SUMMER EVENING FARMERS MARKET AT DANSON HOUSE, DANSON PARK, DA6 8HL

Although our Summer Evening Farmers Market at Danson House opened during the Summer Period of 2021 sadly due to other Markets and Events being held at the same venue to very different criteria to ours we took the difficult decision to not run the Summer Evening Farmers Market in July and August 2022. 

Please see the Danson House page on the Market Section on this website for further information .

Dartford Farmers Market

We have contacted Dartford Borough Council regarding the re opening of Dartford Farmers Market several times, however to date no confirmation of reopening has been received

Thank you everyone for your ongoing support of the Accredited Real Farmers Markets during these difficult and ever changing times

Take care and stay safe
