“Authentic covered market”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Not as good as years gone by when local producers brought their produce for sale. Now a bit more like a modern market with a mix of produce, ephemera and tat. Some good stuff too though. The building is lovely and there are some small independent retailers in the area selling high quality local and not so local produce.

Excellent market town with wonderful enclosed market. There was an interesting choice of stalls, from local produce to art and second hand bric-a-brac. This market is open every day with different things on sale on different days.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

The charm of this town on the edge of Dartmoor attracts thousands of visitors each year, and the pannier market acts like a magnet. This was our first visit and we spent an hour browsing the stalls before enjoying a nice cup of coffee. Local food, handcrafted gifts, toys and jewelry are among the endless variety of items on sale. A real country town with traditional shops among the usual High Street favourites.
