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 and bank holiday from 10am-5pm, 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.
