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 Faversham Food Hall.
In Spring 2020, they opened their second store here in Ashford, offering an all-day dining & shopping experience at Elwick Place, on the site of the old cattle market. Macknade Ashford is open every day and guests can shop from an extensive range of fresh produce, groceries, wine & cheese, or enjoy dishes & drinks in their restaurant & bar.
Using quality ingredients, simply cooked to bring out their flavours, dishes reflect Macknade’s Kentish & Mediterranean roots and feature meat from their award-winning butchers, fresh seasonal produce and cheese & charcuterie from their famous deli counter. Seating is a mixture of individual & communal tables, located centrally amongst the service counters, creating an informal & friendly space for everyone to enjoy.
