Barnstaple Farmers’ Market is thriving.
Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Pannier Market, Town Centre. Butchers Row shops open all week.

Bideford Farmers' Market
has great local produce. On the second and fourth Saturday of each month in summer, 9am-2pm on Bideford Quay.

Bideford Pannier Market
is a little disappointing (except the WI chutneys and cakes which are wonderful) but needs supporting. Tuesdays and Saturdays, 8am-3pm. Butchers Row shops open all week.

Appledore fresh fish trawlers land on the quayside. Landing times depend on tides and are posted on Appledore quay.

Keep an eye out for the Hocking’s Ice Cream vans. Possibly the nicest ice cream you’ll ever try. Made in Appledore since 1936 by the same family, and full of clotted cream.
