Due to the re-emergence of Covid, combined with our restricted venue at the Church, we have decided to continue with the On line/Drive Thru market. We continue to keep the situation under review.
We have volunteers willing to deliver locally to those who cannot get out.

1285, Edward I granted the village of Shipbourne permission to hold a weekly
market. In May 2003, with the help of a grant from Rural Revival, the Parochial
Church Council re-inaugurated the market. Our objective is to provide a focus
for the community and a retail outlet for small local producers. The Market is
run entirely by volunteers. Any surplus made by the market is donated to
Agricultural charities such as the Farm Crisis Network and Bread-line Africa.
