The Old Market

Built originally as a pannier market in 1828 where eggs, poultry and fresh produce, all from local farms, was sold, and the goods arrived every market day in baskets slung on  the back of  ponies. Many things have changed since then, but delicious fresh food still arrives from the same farms.
                             
Set in the curtilage of a nostalgically attractive listed building, formally the Market Courthouse, surrounded by retail units, which, with the existing shops, stalls and eateries, provide an eclectic mix of goods that really can boast has something for everyone with gifts to take home to pet food, fantastic local food, health products, hardware and household goods, children’s clothes, plants, soft furnishings, jewellery, vinyl records and dress fabric to name but a few of the wide-ranging goods on offer. There is even a barber!

The market square is also a venue for many Dartmouth events including the annual December Fatstock Show when livestock is on display just as it was in the past. A chance to get up close and personal with the animals.

Very importantly, there are also two fabulous cafes, one, the Dart to Mouth Deli, an award winner for their cream teas, with outside seating so you can sit and watch the world go by as you sample the delicious home-made food in the sunshine.  The Old Market is definitely the place to unwind and enjoy a bit of retail therapy.
