The countryside in the Tunbridge Wells area lives up to its reputation as the Garden of England. Virtually year round supplies of locally grown organic and non-organic fruits, vegetables, locally produced meats and other produce mean that local people and visitors alike can take advantage of the best this area has to offer in food and drink. The area is particularly known for its soft fruits, such as cherries, strawberries, raspberries, also for apples and pears, honey, cob nuts, asparagus, hops (used for making beer), and locally produced wines.
Regular Farmers' Markets in Kent are becoming increasingly popular and ensure that seasonal, locally grown produce is relatively easy to come by.
On every 2nd and 4th Saturday in the month, a Farmers' Market operated by the Council is held outside the Town Hall and Library buildings in Civic Way from 9am to 2pm. Farmers at this market come from a maximum of a 30 mile radius of Royal Tunbridge Wells, ensuring that the produce really is local.
Please remember to bring a bag!
A second market is also held on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month in the Pantiles from 10am to 4pm.
Farmers' Markets are also held in Cranbrook on the 4th Saturday of the month from 9am to 12 midday in the Vestry Hall at the corner of the High Street and Stone Street in the centre of the town; on the village green or village hall in Horsmonden fortnightly on a Friday (excluding January) from 9am to 12 midday; and in the Elizabethan Barn at Sissinghurst Castle, near Cranbrook on the second Monday in every month from 12pm to 3pm.
