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

We went to a 'festival' in there so the normal market stalls were absent. It is a quaint place to visit and there's a small café if anyone wants a bite to eat 🍽 or a cuppa 🫖
Great place for a browse, coffee, meet interesting people and pick up some lovely bits.

Really great little place with some interesting stores. Particularly enjoyed looking at the art galleries (Harry Juniper and others) and wood carving place (John Butcher) with some very humorous and touching pieces of work. Some real characters throughout the market who were a real pleasure to meet and talk to.
