From deep-filled mince pies to spiced mulled wine, the festive season brings plenty of tasty treats, and what better place to stock up on your favourite Christmas delights than at Ashford Farmers’ Market.
You’re in for a treat because there will be not one, but two Farmers’ Markets in December! It’s the perfect opportunity to pick up tasty Christmas treats, soak up the festive atmosphere and even pick up a present or two!
Firstly, we have the regular December’s Farmers’ Market on Sunday 4th December between 10am and 2pm on the lower High Street which will be packed with local businesses selling fresh, local produce and artisan made goods.
Shoppers will be spoilt for choice because they can enjoy delicious food from Jays Soul Food and The Good Food Brothers, then sit back with a tea from Bergamia Tea and listen to entertainment from Nathan Walker and DJ Gideon.
You can browse for some great gift ideas from unique arts and crafts stalls including hand painted glass ornaments from Silver Raven and beautiful handmade stationary from The Handford Collection. We will also be welcoming doTerra who will be selling natural oils for hair and skin care.
Shoppers can then bag some festive foodie treats at a special Christmas Farmers’ Market on Thursday 22nd December between 4pm and 7pm. The market will take place in Park Mall and will have a lovely festive atmosphere, complete with twinkling lights and delicious festive food on offer.
What’s more, you can squeeze in even more shopping as a selection of stores in Park Mall, County Square and the High Street will remain open until 7pm as part of the Late Night Shopping in Ashford. Check out www.loveashford.com/blog/latenightshopping for the full list of participating stores.
