Whitstable Harbour Village

Whitstable Harbour Village

Visit the fabulous seaside shopping experience in the heart of Whitstable’s beautiful working harbour this week-end and meet some of the finest Kentish food producers, artists, artisans and independent entrepreneurs all selling their wares from traditional fisherman’s huts.

There are now 33 harbour traders in Whitstable’s own UP-market offering a wide range of local art, food, gifts, produce, crafts and toys and many have moved on to set up successful independent shops and businesses in Whitstable and all over East Kent.

Look out for our special events or stay for lunch or a snack in the new Kentish Food Quarter.

You won’t find any multinational corporate brands at the Village but you will find lots of local character and charm amongst the fishing boats, nets and sailing barges.

Open every week-end until Christmas from 10am-4pm, Whitstable Harbour Village offers a vibrant and authentic alternative to dreary superstores and out of town shopping malls. So go UP-market this week-end. We're local and we're not Tesco.


We officially hibernate for the winter season at the end of December but about ten of our traders soldier on through the cold as the weather permits, so please pop down and say hello. We fully re-open again on March 1st 2015 and are looking for new traders to join us next season which will be season nine.


The 2015 season may be a little shorter than usual due to essential harbour maintenance being carried out by Canterbury City Council, currnently scheduled to commence in September 2015,
