There is always something of interest at this market. Local food, plants, flowers cakes and pastries, it's always popular and well attended. Also the covered market behind the square. Tavistock is a lovely little town with plenty of interesting places to visit. Always busy on Market days, when all the locals come to town.

In the town square every second Saturday the green and whit stalls of this award winning market are full of fine food straight from the farm. Wonderful vegetables, local meats, shellfish and bread - it a feast for the eyes well before it gets to your stomach.

Ideally located in the centre of Tavistock and has a wide range of stalls for your choice. I believe that certain days of the week have certain stalls ie; antiques, craft etc. But having said that everytime we visit there seems to be something new to look at. Well worth a nosey in.

A small market but all of the traders were friendly and had good quality local goods. Right next to the indoor market and town hall where there was a craft fayre on.

We visited on a Saturday in October. It was set up outside of the Pannier Market. There was only a few vendors set up. There were a couple selling homemade bread, some meat, some plants, a couple selling fruits and vegetables. I'm assuming that there would be a lot more on offer during the summer months but, what was on... More

It was fun to roam around the market which is filled with fresh vegetables stands, prepared foods, antique collectibles, crafts, and a variety of local wares, all inside a beautiful old stone building that looks to have been converted from maybe a barn or stable into the market.

We chose craft day to visit and enjoyed an hour's rummage round. The market is closed on Monday and changes slightly each day.

If you are in the area this is worth a visit it is undercover and you can spend an hour exploring the Aladdin's cave of stalls and try a bit of bartering to get a deal Also various cafes just outside for tea and cakes break
