Exmouth Farmers’ Market to run fortnightly

EXMOUTH FARMERS’ MARKET – which had been running once a month – is to go fortnightly from next Wednesday, March 9.

There will also be a broader range of produce on offer, with new stalls including wet fish, smoked fish and hot Caribbean food to take away.

It is the first time that the market has stepped up its frequency since it was launched as a monthly event in 1998. The move – welcomed by market traders and environmental group Transition Town Exmouth – is being trialled for six months to see if it is sustainable.

“We definitely think it’s worth giving it a try,” says Nick May, Chairman of the Exmouth Farmers’ Market Association and proprietor of the Bread of Devon stall. “We’ve been delighted by the new-look Strand, and the farmers’ market works well in the new setting.

“We hope that the market will become more of a part of people’s lives in the town. Rather than on the second Wednesday of each month, it will be every fortnight, which will be much easier to remember.”

The new fortnightly market will be every second Wednesday from March 9. Taking place at the Strand Gardens from 9am to 1.30pm, subsequent dates include March 23, April 6, April 20, May 4, May 18 and June 1.
