Old Hall Farm has provided the Sandgate Farmers' Market with high quality, traditionally reared meat, eggs and sausages almost since the beginning and now they are branching out into fruit and vegetables. You'll not find any oranges or bananas on the Marsh Produce stall as they will only sell what can be sourced locally - mainly in Kent but occasionally further afield. Please support this new initiative and help them build a product range that meets your needs.

Did you know that... December is the twelfth and last month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars. It is the seventh and last month to have the length of 31 days. December got its name from the Latin word decem (meaning ten) because it was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman

calendar, which began in March. The winter days following December were not included as part of any month. Later, the months of January and February were created out of the monthless period and added to the beginning of the calendar, but December retained its name. In the Western World the month is strongly associated with Christmas.
