ANNOUNCEMENT: West Malling Farmers Market Re Opened on Sunday 23 August 2020
We worked very hard between May and August 2020 to try and secure some funding to get West Malling Farmers Market up and running again abiding by the Government requirements. The costs are high spread over a possible 12 – 18 months based on the current social distancing requirements. We also supplied our health and safety risk assessment to the Borough Council for the farmers market to re open..
We’re pleased to confirm that the funding was agreed which meant that we could re – open West Malling Farmers Market in August 2020 – the first market took place on Sunday 23rd August. We would like to thank West Malling Parish Council, Kent County Council Councillors and Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council for their help and support in enabling West Malling Farmers Market to re open.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the farmers market stallholders.
The next Farmers Market at West Malling takes place on Sunday 22nd November .
A one way system will be in place with the entrance to the Farmers Market being at the Church/Kings Hill end of the Farmers Market.
