Macknade Fine Foods


Macknade creates spaces and experiences that bring communities together around a shared love of food & drink.

Encompassing retail, hospitality, events, food service and farming, the Macknade brand has been synonymous with quality and community since 1847.

With strong roots here in the garden of England and the island of Ischia in Italy, Macknade is on a mission to bring producers, suppliers and consumers closer together in true community spirit.

The Kentish-Italian business has been in the same family for six generations and in 1979 they began retailing – opening Macknade Farm Shop, which later became Macknade’s award-winning Faversham Food Hall. What started life as a tent in a field on the family farm is now a 10,000sqft food hall, delicatessen, butcher, café & kitchen, well renowned locally for its quality and range of produce.

With influences from Italy, Kent and all over the world, Macknade is the place to be for specialist ingredients and everyday essentials. Located only a short walk from Faversham town centre, at the junction of Selling Road and the A2, it’s at the top of our list for any foodie visiting Kent!

You can now also visit their new Ashford location or order from Macknade online, with hampers & gifts available for delivery anywhere in the UK.
