Harbour Market Whitstable

An open-air showcase of locally-created, British made, premium and hand-crafted goods and fine art. Set in the working harbour of Whitstable, a unique and quirky fishing town on the north east coast of Kent.

Enjoy the paintings, drawings, prints and photography of artists settled alongside skilled craftspeople, who feature an eclectic roster of distinctive goods, including jewellery, wrought iron work, ceramics, textiles and furniture.

With such a diverse mix of artistic styles, there is something to suit each budget and match every taste. With the added bonus of meeting the makers and creators themselves.

The micro eateries serve a mouth watering variety of food ranging from fresh wraps, home-made fish burgers, Britain's favourite dish - curry, and it would not be Whitstable without a delicious serving of fried fish.

Who's Behind the Market?

The 3 people involved in Artisan Collaboration, were all previous traders at the Harbour.

Keith Allen, makes a delicious cup of coffee with a free donut.

Stephen Randal, wonderful gold and silver jewellery, he trained as a silversmith, and his objet d’art are a fantastic example of ‘Best of British’.

Jo Vogelaar, works mainly with pearls, using both precious metals and other materials to show their natural beauty and original design.

Their shared vision of a lively community based market, encompassing everything that is ‘made in Britain and local’ brought them together to set up Artisan Collaboration Whitstable.
