The stalls support the friends’ group, their rent helps fund small projects including the mud kitchen, wildflower seeds, bird seed, tools etc.
Whitegates Farm bring eggs, fruit, vegetables, apple juices…and hopefully some Kent apples, Marsh Meat have a selection of meats and we are hoping the preserves will be back after their summer break.
