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. Traders arrive to offer the best of local produce, craft, cheeses and chutneys, bakery goods, cakes and chocolate, garden plants, books, local art, 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. There is also a market held during the October half term.
Visit www.watchettowncouncil.org for more information about stall holders.
This year there are some lovely food stalls too 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.
