Inner westies have a new farmers market to wake up every Sunday with the Canterbury Foodies and Farmers Markets. This is the third market venue for the Organic Foodies Markets, adding to its current markets at Ramsgate and Peakhurst. I went along in its second week of trade (the markets started on June 26 this year) and was amazed by the number and variety of stalls.
The market set-up alongside Canterbury Racecourse works well. There's a huge car park for customers and the sprawling grounds mean there's plenty of space to walk and wander between stalls without feeling hemmed in.
There were slides, trampoline bungee and Shetland pony rides for the kids but we were more fascinated by the fresh produce, baked goods and food on offer. I was impressed by the variety of food stalls, that extended far beyond the usual bacon and egg rolls and gozleme.
I'm also loving that they're open relatively late, trading from 9am until 2pm - allowing you a good sleep-in and a market run!
