The Goods Shed opened in 2002 as a daily farmers market with onsite restaurant using the local market produce. Its continuing success (your support) along with other home grown outlets has contributed to supermarkets stocking more British produce. The 'food hall’ reaches further afield to stock a fuller, more complete shop . This in turn has lead to a greater turnover of fresh local produce and more British Cottage industries exposed to the consumer.
The Goods Shed Restaurant Ingredients are sourced from roughly 2ft away in the market: finest Kentish produce, British traditions and techniques, Spanish sensibilities. The result is balm to the soul, not to mention the kind of grub that sends you off with a giant grin on your well-fed chops.
The compact, seasonal menu constantly changes, using the best local ingredients the market has to offer. Slow proved loaves are drawn from the ovens in the bakery throughout the day, whole carcasses of meat, broken into cuts on the butchery and dishes being prepared and cooked from the open kitchen.
Lunch is served from noon and is popular for three courses or for some, just a couple of starters. Supper is slightly more formal and served from 6pm as the market is winding down for the day.
