Temporary closure of the Barnstaple Pannier Market

We have taken the decision to temporarily close the Barnstaple Pannier Market while we deal with some issues that arose during works that took place last week.

We will be carrying out some surveys and testing and hope to open again very quicky. All traders are being contacted; we are sorry for any inconvenience.


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.

It has a café offering a varied menu at great prices and a relaxed atmosphere, where you can sit and watch the world go by.

The market opened again following the a third national lockdown on 12 April. We are currently open 9am to 4pm, Tuesday to Saturday.

Wednesday – Antiques and Collectables
