Widecombe Village Market started in November 2005. It has enjoyed great success and is well supported by local people and visitors from a wide area.
The market is held in the beautiful and historic Church House, owned by The National Trust and leased to the village. It becomes the perfect market hall and adds considerably to the festive atmosphere of this event.
There is always an interesting range of produce, from olives and olive oil to locally grown vegetables and plants. Cheeses, apple juice, honey, home made bread, cakes, jams, chutneys etc. are all there with the core stalls being beef, lamb and pork from local Widecombe farms.
Refreshments are provided by local groups and charities who benefit from the proceeds.
The Market has now become an established fixture on the village calendar. It is usually held on the fourth Saturday of the month apart from: December (dates vary).
The main aim of the market is to benefit local producers and businesses. In order to continue to be varied and interesting and to continue to evolve, enquiries from new stall holders are always welcome.
