Every time we have been here it is empty and now realise there is a market somewhere weekends. Cafe is open though for coffee and snacks also clean toilets
Extreamly friendly lady found me an exceptional wholemeal loaf from store and cut it right on closing time. Also had some cakes from there later in week. Very good. Proper service with a smile.

Great artisan wood sculpting, pottery etc only a few units but well with the visit. The council need to support the market to get more stalls making use of the hall.

I went to Bideford last Saturday to go to the pannier market. I was so disappointed that it was not open. I was then told that it wouldn't be open for a while!! 😔 I then decided to see what the shops had to offer and was shocked further by the fact that they consisted of charity shops, dog groomers and Turkish barber's. What happened to our lovely little historic towns??. Anyway, I absolutely love charity shops and bagged a couple of bargains. 😊 So all was not lost. I think it will be a lovely place to visit in the summer 🌞 x

Walked in on a Saturday 20th, been advertised of a market. I walked into the market and was only like 10 stalls! I was expecting more than that. Heard good things about the market but it disappointed me
