There has been a market in Watchet since the 13th century and this tradition continues today with the lively and colourful Watchet Summer Market. Every Wednesday, from May to September, brightly-coloured gazebos are erected on The Esplanade, overlooking the harbour and marina, and traders arrive to offer the best of local produce and craft including fruit and veg, cheeses and chutneys, bakery goods, cakes and chocolate, garden plants, books, local art and crafts, gifts, antiques and curios and a fresh fish stall.
The market season starts on Wednesday 1st May 2019 and stalls trade from 9:30am to 4:00pm.
Visit www.watchettowncouncil.org for more information about stall holders.
This year there are some lovely food stalls also so pay a visit, buy some local goodies and have your lunch on the Esplanade overlooking the marina taking in the atmosphere of this vibrant market.
