Great for an amble around. The international food looks inviting and there tends to be small queues around them. The fresh breads, cheeses and fruit and veg stalks are good. Bought a footstool from the reclaimed furniture last year, and its still in good condition. The bric-a-brac at the back of the market is interesting. Dog friendly, but can be a bit crowded and busy

TOTNES MARKET Fridays & Saturdays- Good Social Distancing- bustling but felt safe- Fantastic Local Honeys with Devon made Honey Pots using local ash.

Pay n display, as most people you carry a few spare coins for parking the car but when you run out and need more coins where do you go ??????????? A shop to get some change but you may be asked to purchase something too , a normal high street bank like the black horse in the town , totnes , I wanted to exchange a £20.00 note for coins but they totally refused me on the grounds I needed to have a bank account ( just to swap notes for coins ) they advised me to try the post office but even they needed there coins for customers so I was refused again . The car parks in totnes do not accommodate anyone with bank cards as machines are not updated. Sooooooo does the average tourist have to visit another town . TOTNES needs to join the year 2021 and keep up

I tried the Market today at 10ish unfortunately only one or two stallholders wearing face coverings and not many shoppers either wearing them. No awareness of social distancing from other shoppers and some stallholders. No one way system or hand sanitiser at the entrance from either end of the market. SHDC needs to put these measures in place to make it a safer shopping experience for people to feel safe.

From once a charming Devon market town it’s now a scruffy and tatty refuge for what were once New Age travellers who are now old aged settlers. The town square has been neglected over recent years with sporadic dollops of tarmac replacing missing block stonework and surrounded by bad planning permission examples of 1960, 70,80’s building mistakes. The good news is that there are plenty of cafes to choose from, if you like lentils, quality cream teas sadly don’t exist . There are also plenty of shops, if you like secondhand clothes. In fact most residents seem to be wearing each other’s ill fitting attire. Top tip, if you decide to wear long trousers make sure they stop 6 inches above your shoes, otherwise you just look stupid. Tatnes looks like a great place to raise your family though, assuming your kids are called either Willow, Rainbow or Puck.

The Elizabethan market has gone down hill in recent years and today when I visited consisted of only half a dozen stands. I would also warn visitors to be careful when buying from the elderly lady with a large stand selling jewellery as she is rather fanciful in her descriptions many items described as Gold not authentic.She sells things with a buyer beware policy and refuses to refund misdescribed items.

First time visit to this pleasant Market Town, to visit an old friend, but unfortunately, not on Market Day. Nevertheless this is a really pleasant place to spend a few hours, full of quirky shops, lovely eateries, and a number of buildings of interest. Best place to park is on Steamer Quay, by the lovely River Dart. Though not running at present, because of Covid , you can take what must be pleasant boat trips from here along the River, down to Dartmouth. The towns main thoroughfare is Fore St, which runs gradually uphill towards the Castle, which we never visited, but commands great views over the town. Enjoyed a pleasant lunch in a small but friendly Cafe,, had a drink in the notable Dartmouth Inn, and looked at the plethora of nice shops and interesting buildings on our way round. Really enjoyable day and well worth a visit, Market or no Market.

Recently discovered this market and will certainly be back. It's just the right size - some of those markets which go on for miles get boring and I end up walking past a lot of interesting stuff because there is too much to look at. It's got the right mix of stalls and a great quirkiness about it. Plus of course, it is in the middle of Totnes Fore Street which is an absolute pleasure to saunter around for a couple of hours.

The Totnes Market is an excellent market for fresh food (bread, veg, fruit, eggs). One of the delicious dishes I ate there was called masala dosa from a vendor named Kumar. It is a vegan/gluten free dish (rice, lentil, potato in a dosa wrap). I came to this market because I saw a video about Kumar on an animal sanctuary site. He is a lovely man, very friendly and compassionate.

There are many other vendors that participate in the Totnes Market. You can find all sorts, books, material, antiques, food, etc. It's not a huge market but it's worth a trip out there. I submitted this review in 2019. I went back in and it had me submit it again. I don't know if it was open all year (this year) - I hope it was. I intend on visiting again next year.
