The biggest market yet!

The 4th Tonbridge Farmers Market is happening on Sunday 11th September.

With over 55 stalls booked in already this month it is going to be the biggest market to date. More producers are showing an interest so we may have a few more by the 11th.

Customer numbers were a bit down at the last market but August and January are well known to have a lower footfall than the rest of the year. Most producers said their takings are going up month on month.

The Market Kitchen was again a great success last month with lots of the customers watching the demonstrations and also getting a taster of the food cooked plus getting an idea of whats available at the market.

Cooking this month will be Jenny from the Happy Apple, - she will be promoting the benefits of cooking with your children.

Brenda from Beech Dog Bakery will be "Cooking for your Dog" - the demonstration will show a healthy alternative that is actually cheaper than the vast majority of commercial foods. Beach Dog Bakery "Liberty" mix provides the core of the dog's meal providingthe balanced level of vitamins minerals they need to go with a raw or cooked diet. She will be cooking a selection of recipe ideas using meats and fish with veg pasta and rice. She will be making up the recipes on our leaflets and feeding guide included in the pack.... ...So bring the dog along for a taster.

Stuart and Lucy from Lucys Veal will be cooking using some of their great products.

Neil Scott our resident chef from The Globe and Rainbow will be making some wonderful dishes with produce he finds on the market.

Our charity stall this month is the locally based Fibromyalgia in Tonbridge Support Group.

The market is actively looking for charities or local groups to take up the offer of a free pitch which is available at every market.

Pink Sunday will soon be with us.
At the market in October we will be raising money for Breast Cancer Care.

The stall holders will be dressing in pink, some more than others. Any customers wearing some pink will automatically have 10% from any purchase made given to this fantastic charity. We tried this at another market last year and it was a great success. We do have some photos of last year's event.

Customers wishing to get a reminder for the market can do so by emailing steve@tonbridgefarmersmarket.co.uk and just put reminder in the subject box or for a text reminder, text Tonbridge to 07557739903. Steve said The reminder service is great, - It's so easy to let a lot of customers know when the market is on.
