Admit it, when you book a holiday you have a little think about trying the local produce once you get there, and who can blame you when the location is Devon? The historic Pannier Market in Barnstaple was voted as one of Britain’s Top Ten Food Markets, so it’s the best local market for anyone keen to sample the local wares and produce.
We’re not just talking about the most obvious delicacies of fruit, veg and pasties either, the fresh food to sample includes fish, eggs, cheese, meat and cakes – everything you need to enjoy the taste of the West Country .
Market goers can buy their food directly from the people who made, caught and bred it, so Barntaple’s Pannier Market is one of the freshest ways to enjoy that authentic food experience during your visit.
While you’re there check out Butcher’s Row which has stood since the market building was built in 1855 and is known for its quality meats and fishmongers. They’ll be more than happy to tell you everything you need to know about the meat and you’ll be able to take something back to your cottage that’ll impress the whole clan.
