Barnstaple Pannier Market

Barnstaple’s historic Pannier Market is run by North Devon Council but we are proud to work with them as Barnstaple Town Council’s Guildhall shares a corner of the building and a long history together.

All information regarding the Pannier Market can be found on North Devon Council’s website via this page – Pannier Market – all you need to know.

You can find out about opening times, how to become a trader, how to find the market, the history of the panniers and market fees.

Since Saxon times, Barnstaple has served as a market town for the surrounding countryside. Traditionally, separate markets for meat, fish, produce and other goods were held in the streets of the town, with Friday appointed as the main market day for livestock from Queen Mary’s time.
