To give a taste of what will be on offer, there will be Kentish chocolates and truffles, handmade tarts and cakes, noodles, paella, flavoured cheeses, gluten free meringues, olives, fresh charcuterie and cured meats.

Other stalls will be selling cider, fresh coconut water, chai, craft beers and ales.

There will also be traders offering items made from British wool and garden furniture.

Visitor entry to the festival will be free of charge.

Paul Kennedy said: “For many years Hythe has been Kent’s best kept secret with other seaside towns such as Whitstable and Deal taking the limelight through the resurgence in the fortunes of the county’s seaside towns, both as destinations for visitors and home owners seeking improved quality of life.

“Hythe is now, however, up there as one of the desirable places to live and there is new found vitality in this seaside town a fact reflected in a changing demographic and the development of both new and old residential homes.

“Come along to the festival and get to know the town that really has got the lot.”

Market Square Group has put on similar market events across the UK since 2009. To find out more about Market Square Group’s events visit
