Watchet Market – Wednesday

There has been a market in Watchet since the 13th century and this tradition continues today with the lively and colourful Watchet Summer Market. The historic  market was held in the Market House which now houses the Town Museum.

Todays Market is situated  on  The Esplanade in brightly coloured gazebos overlooking the harbour and marina.

The Market starts in April and goes through the summer to September and traders are ready and waiting for you from 9.30am until 3.30pm. There is a special one off market during the October half term holiday.

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. There are also food traders and tea and coffee vendors for you to enjoy alfresco eating at the market.

You can get to the market by train using the West Somerset Railway service from Minehead or Bishops Lydeard. By  Number 28 bus from Minehead and Taunton. You can walk, or travel by car. There are 4 car parks in Watchet so if Harbour Road Car Park is full check out Anchor Street, Market Street and the Mineral Yard, these are all within walking distance of the Town and Esplanade.
