The stalls lacked so much and there was no sense of life and welcome. The signage is interesting. The Heritage is so important but this needs TLC. Parts are wheelchair friendly with help

Wonderful to see that someone has bothered to keep old signs & knows the history of this old Market. We enjoyed reading about it & wandering around inside. Lots of character & quite a few shops & stalls to be found there.

There are less retailers in the market square than last year. This area, is more a place for more mature people to meet for coffee, and a chat, than a vibrant market scene.

Follow the street signs to find this, tucked away behind the shops. The cobbled market square is surrounded by an array of charming independent shops, cafes, farm shop etc. a very busy place on Market days

We always visit the Old Market Square when in Dartmouth. An interesting place with two nice cafe's, lots of little specialist shops and a very good fish stall. These units are supplemented on certain days with extra specialist stalls. Worth a look around.

Was given a lovely leaflet when we left the ferry about the market. Based on this, we went. Few stalls, expensive items. Won't be going back there.
