tastefaversham was set up in March 2010 to explore and promote the taste of food and drink from the Faversham 'triangle' and its surrounding villages.

Facebook page Twitter

Faversham and the local area is rapidly becoming a nationally recognised source for high quality food and drink and tastefaversham holds periodic events and activities such as special meals, visits to producers, school projects, tastings, conferences ... and more

tastefaversham aims to encourage local culture and diversity by highlighting, supporting and promoting the rich variety and high quality of local food and drink

We are delighted by the new opportunities for real food in Faversham with the new management of the market. Faversham Market (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday) and Best of Faversham (1st Saturday of the month) have breathed new life into Faversham, the Faversham Market Co-operative and Grahame Kane have made a real difference to Faversham.

The launch of the Faversham Food Festival with plans for four weekends celebrating local food.

The ‘Celebration’ weekends for 2014 are:
May 3rd/4th - Faversham Asparagus Weekend

The English asparagus season usually runs from around St Georges Day (April 23rd, in case anyone doesn’t remember!) – which means it’s nearly here !

The tender shoots of Asparagus officinalis have been savoured since at least the time of the ancient Greeks, and there is even an image of asparagus as an offering to the Gods in an Egyptian frieze dating from 3000 BC.

The gloriously tender shoots have been appreciated for millennia, for their medicinal purposes as well as their epicurean delights ... salads, soups, served cool with vinaigrette or mayonnaise, served warm wrapped in thinly sliced local ham and grilled gently ... quick to prepare and a real sign of spring!

Asparagus: more history, recipes and producers

We'll be celebrating our local crop around town on May 3rd & 4th, and we’re planning our first visit to a producer around the same time – influenced by the weather and cropping of course.

Hop shoots are a local delicacy - poor man's asparagus

July 12th/13th - Faversham Seafood Weekend (this ties in with The Nautical Festival)

August 16th/17th - Faversham Fruit Weekend & Food Festival

October 18th/19th - Faversham Game and Apple Weekend

For 2015 there are plans a stand alone three day Faversham Food Festival - this could tie in with Magna Carta activity. We will also be inviting food producers, including fishermen, and retailers from Canterbury and Whitstable to join us to create a food triangle and become the foundation of our dynamic plans for 2016.

About us: TasteFaversham is run by Kate Stefanko, Kerry Kenton-Clark and Harold Goodwin.
