Markets in Bideford 2024

Bideford does markets whether it's on the Quay or up at The Pannier Market

  • Go to the Bideford Farmers Market on The Quay every 3rd Saturday (Starting in March 2024) and enjoy the — hopefully nice — weather while browsing for delicious fresh food. Plus, you get to support your local suppliers, and it's typically better for the environment than shopping at a grocery store.  
  • The Wonderful eat:festival is returning for its second year this April to Bideford Quay. It promises to bring many producers and products into the town on festival day. Producers are mostly based within 30 miles of Bideford, with a few exceptional and hard-to-find products from further afield. 
  • The Continental Food Market will line along Fisherman's Wharf on Bideford Quay again this summer. This market features many great world food and products that don't feature at our usual markets. 
  • Torridge Arts & Crafts Market continues to bring some glorious handcrafted goodies to the Pannier Market. The first one is set for March 2024 

With no entry fee, a market is the perfect opportunity to have a mooch about, you can even bring your dog. Let's face it: Who doesn't love a food market? and if its an arts & crafts market - grab some food from one of the many eateries in the town
