About this event

The Saturday Market is a weekly celebration of the best local food, craft and music the area has to offer.

We are lucky to have an abundance of quality products grown and made in our community, and we’re delighted to offer a beautiful space for the farmers and producers to offer it to you directly.

And this year for the first time, these local businesses will be joined by some terrific local music acts!  So come on down, browse our stalls and support your community whilst enjoying great food, drink and more.

Huxbear Wine

Ben & Lucy Hulland have over 15 acres of vineyard in the Teign Valley, where they produce both still and sparkling wines. They are working hard to be fully sustainable, using minimum intervention and integrated pest management in the fields, and running the winery completely off-grid. The vegan wines they produce are some of the best that the UK has to offer. Wickhams Great British Wine Merchant says: “This is as good as anything you’ll get from Champagne – and at a great price”

The Big Kebabski

If you haven’t tried their fully vegan kebabs, you’d better hurry, because they sell out fast, and for good reason. This is some of the tastiest street food you will ever have; even hard-core carnivores are smitten by the flavour explosion!
