Visiting this old Pannier market was a wonderful experience , plenty to see and do. Old military regalia old books, dvd's plants Jewellery allsorts.
Met a nice Lady who's name was Angela Banfiel who was dealing in Ponchos and the like, actually manufactured in Dartmoor A very likable lady. There were places to eat and drink, all in all like an Aladins Cave

“well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

There are different stalls on different days. I have visited mainly on a Saturday and found some excellent stalls to browse around. There is a very good 2nd hand book stall covering a wide variety of subjects - fiction and non fiction,
My passion is music and the lost records stall is a great place to browse the different categories of music.The stallholder has a great knowlege of music and is very friendly and he will search out and order titles that you are looking for.
The second Saturday of each month is an arts and craft market and there are some really good artist displaying their pictures and photographs; I particularly liked the quirky, funny birthday cards featuring Dartmoor animals, and I also liked the stall selling black and white photography featuring subjects from India and from Dartmoor.
I also recommend the furniture stall( if you are willing to haggle a price from the stall owner) .

I have occassionally visited on a Friday to buy organic vegetables and organic meat which is very good value.

I have visited the market on a few occasions and love it, there is a good variety of stalls and some lovely crafty things to buy, there always seems to be something different, there is an excellent fudge stall too.
