New look Farmers’ Market encourages shoppers back to Exeter City Centre
Published: 23 March 2022
Exeter Farmers’ Market has a smart new look.
The Farmers' Market, which operates every Thursday from 9am to 1pm at the junction of South Street and Fore Street in Exeter, has been rebranded.
The new – yellow and black – look has come about thanks to funding from Exeter’s ‘Welcome Back Fund’, which helps businesses recover from the effects of the pandemic by encouraging shoppers back to the city centre.
Exeter City Council’s Markets & Halls team worked hard to rebrand the Farmers’ Market and source the eye-catching, newly branded market stalls.
Helen Coombes, who is responsible for the management of the market, said: "Exeter Farmers Market is well established, but with the difficulties presented by the pandemic, we have sadly lost one or two of our regular local producers.
“We have been fortunate enough to have secured help to revitalise the market, from funds provided nationally to assist town and city centres to recover from the effects of the pandemic. The look of the market was somewhat tired, and really needed refreshing.
“We hope this will result in the market becoming more appealing to new producers and also to customers, so that it continues to be an important part of the street scene in this part of the city centre," she added
Exeter Farmers’ Market offers shoppers the chance to find top quality West Country produce in the heart of the city. The market is a vibrant and enjoyable place to buy and sell and meet with producers who offer a delicious range of foods including venison, pork, lamb, beef, chicken, organic fruit and vegetables, apple juice, fish, chicken, preserves, cakes, bread, pies and much more.
