For the foodies

There’s plenty of stalls to tempt your taste buds at the Chartwell Christmas market. Discover fool-proof baking with the help of Cookietastic, who put all the ingredients for delicious artisan cookies into jars – all you have to do is pour into a bowl, add some eggs and butter and mix.

Indulge with delicious chocolate from Stas Chocolatier, who combine traditional favourites with continental chocolate making skills. If you like ginger, then you’ll love Wrights Original with their dark ginger drink and food products.

Don't forget to pop into our café from 09:30 - 12noon for a hot bacon roll.

For those who love to pamper

Fentons of Kent, a small friendly business based just outside Sevenoaks, specialises in completely natural handmade soaps, bath, body products and home fragrance.

For luxury soaps, diffusers and candles made from the best raw materials available head over to Will O The Wisp. Based in Ashdown Forest, their products are inspired by the surrounding English countryside. Please note Will O The Wisp are at the market Saturday and Sunday only.

For the fashion conscious

Wrap up in style this winter with handmade stylish hats from Fullabeanies or designer hand knitwear from Cory Creations.

Get ready for the party season with accessories from Blue Designs that are fit for any occasion.

For the home and garden

For handmade textile gifts and household items look no further than And Sew to Thread. Self-professed country girl Caroline reflects her love of the country in every item she lovlingly makes and the result is some charming designs.  

To brighten up your home, check out Elaine Gill and her illustrations. Primarily painted with pen and watercolours, they add a splash of colour to any wall.
