This is a quaint compact market selling local foods, arts and crafts. There is a bar as well as a fish and chip restaurant and usual live music. Worth a visit.

Quirky beach sheds selling large variety of things from crabbing equipment to art and food. Managed to find a really nice local print, and a warming hot chocolate. Great to wander around.

We like to visit this market every time we go to Whitstable as it is a lovely little market. Some of the wares are quite expensive but there are some lovely crafts and food. Well worth a visit or two.

Taking a stroll through the harbour is great for all ages. Littlies can was the seagulls and count the bobbing fishing boats. Minis can select shells or games, teens can skateboard and adults can coffee, Thai, pic pictures, admire paintings or rummage in the clothing...More

Arts and crafts to look at but not to buy Working harbour and plenty of fresh fish to purchase and fish stalls to buy your cockle, welks and oysters.

Very pretentious and full of things you don’t really need. The food stalls are very expensive also. I’m sure it has a great appeal to visitors but not for locals

Open Saturday and Sunday and bank holidays. I would think during school holidays as well but the Tourist web site should be able to help.
