Pannier Market logo

Enjoy the charm and friendly atmosphere of one of Britain's largest indoor markets. There's something for everyone.

Largely unchanged in over 150 years, Barnstaple's historic Pannier Market has a wide range of stalls, with everything from fresh local produce, flowers and crafts, to prints and pictures, fashion and much more. Ideally located on the bustling High Street, the market is a must-see attraction for all visitors to the town.

The market boasts two cafés each offering varied menus at great prices and a relaxed atmosphere, where you can sit and watch the world go by.

Open all year round from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm, there really is something for everyone on every day of the week, except Sundays and bank holidays. And if the market is not enough, there is a great mix of national and independent shops and other attractions nearby.
