Ashford Farmers Market is celebrating it's 3rd Year Anniversary! You can't miss this one day special birthday bash!
July’s Ashford Famers’ Market is delighted to celebrate their third birthday!
The birthday bash will be held on Sunday 2nd July from 10am to 2pm on the Lower High Street.
It will have everything from homemade delights by our much-loved traders to music and entertainment from a local artist, plus two fabulous competitions, and of course some birthday cake!
Deputy Mayor of Ashford, Cllr Jessamy Blanford, will be starting off the birthday celebrations by cutting our specially made birthday cake at 10.45am!
The three-tier cake has been created by the local business Blé Couture and features a handmade, sugarcraft basket of fruit and vegetables.
Make sure you pick up your FREE piece of the birthday cake as we hand out slices to you, along with FREE cups of TEA on the day!
It may be one of the best slices of cake you ever have!
A host of traders will be joining in the celebrations for our special birthday market, adding to our huge offering of sweet and savoury treats.
Pick up some refreshing cider from Gibbet Oak, a sweet treat from Quirky Truffles or some international delights from The French Delicatessen.
What’s more, we have hand-reared meats from Ritoweg Farm, Stour Valley Game who specialise in delicious exotic meats.
As well as Ques Smokehouse who will be promoting their new restaurant (located in Bank Street) by handing out FREE SAMPLES from their menu for all of you to try!
There will also be a selection of delicious street food available for you!
Forget about mocking something up for lunch! Just enjoy the afternoon in town with family and friends - celebrate the market with us!
