A double victory is being celebrated by Thanet winners at the prestigious Taste of Kent Awards.
At the 10th countywide TOKA event last night, Cliftonville Farmers Market won as Kent Farmers Market of the Year and Little Stour Orchard, which has its office in Margate, won a main award as Kent Juice Producer of the Year, also picking up a couple of other accolades.
Cliftonville Farmers’ Market was established in 2001 by the Cliftonville Residents Association, is run entirely by volunteers and is self funded.
It is one of the county’s longest running farmers’ markets and a previous winner of the Produced In Kent (PiK) award in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
The Cliftonville market was also a finalist in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013.
Organiser June Chadband said today: “We were really thrilled to regain our crown, particularly as the other finalists were Rochester and Tonbridge markets.
“It makes all the hard work worthwhile and gives something positive to Cliftonville.
