One of the delights of Christmas shopping are the fun and quirky little markets that pop up across Devon in the run up to festive season. Packed full of locally crafted gifts and yummy food (a Seasalt favourite!) they are a fantastic place to pick up some unique pressies and stocking fillers, or just fill up on mince pies!
A series of small high quality markets in the heart of Exeter with gift markets on Thursday, produce markets on Friday and craft markets on Saturday. Choose from unique jewellery, mosaics, clocks, pashminas, honey, beer and cakes… and much more. All stalls are local so it’s your chance to help out local businesses this Christmas. Markets open at 9am to 5pm (9pm on Thursdays).
