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.

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.

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.
