This has to be the best market I have been to in the UK. It is similar to the really good markets you get in France.

What a gem, the stalls in the market square had so much variety of things to see and buy. We bought a South African gin, what a find. Vegetables were fantastic, shame we were on holiday would of loved to have taken some home

An important feature of a visit to Wells. It was lovely to walk among the stalls, listening to the town crier & enjoying what seemed like going back in time. Great local produce, local crafts people’s work, appetising smells, just a super experience.

Every Wednesday and Saturday from 9:00am to 4:00pm although some fresh food stalls start closing about 1:00pm. Parking is at a premium on market days.
