If heading east along the M2 bound for Canterbury, Margate or a ferry from Dover, divert at junction 6 or 7 for a 'comfort stop' in Faversham. Featured in the Domesday Book, it's Kent's oldest market town and you can also visit Britain's oldest brewery there.

Macknade Food Hall (est. 1847) is an insider's choice for anyone keen to taste this fêted farming region's food first-hand. A 6th-generation family-run place, it brings communities together around a shared love of food and drink, fuelled by admirable values that include curiosity, candour, care and contentment.

In the farm shop and café, much of the fresh produce is from neighbouring suppliers. The cheese and charcuterie deli is akin to an infinity pool, the Kentish wine section is the country's largest and Macknade is proud to have the UK's first Pasture for Life approved butchery counter. Come for pizzas, street food or a sit-down meal throughout the day, then stock up on provisions for a Kent Downs or continental picnic.
