InExeter has announced the return of the highly anticipated Fore Street Flea on Sunday 12 May.

Taking place in the heart of Exeter's West Quarter, the much-loved community event promises a day of excitement, discovery and celebration.

Originating in 2016 as a grassroots initiative by local businesses along Fore Street, the Fore Street Flea has since become a cherished tradition in Exeter.

Now organised by InExeter, the Business Improvement District for Exeter, the event continues to thrive, supporting local businesses and nurturing a vibrant community spirit.

The Fore Street Flea has four dates set for 2024:

  • Sunday 12 May
  • Sunday 14 July
  • Sunday 15 September
  • Sunday 17 November

The bustling street market, which runs from 12-4pm, has earned a reputation as a haven for bargain hunters, offering a diverse array of one-of-a-kind treasures and local gems. From vintage fashion to handmade crafts, collectibles, sweet treats and more, there’s something for everyone.

In addition to the vibrant market there will be live music provided by Music In Devon Initiative through the MIDI Stages project situated outside The Music Depot.

This initiative, in partnership with InExeter, has been made possible through Youth Music’s Trailblazer fund and empowers young musicians in Devon by offering them performance opportunities and a platform to gain valuable experience.

Nicola Wheeler, CEO at InExeter, said: “We're geared up for the 2024 comeback of The Fore Street Flea, a fantastic community event initiated by local businesses.

“As the business improvement district, we take pride in organising this market, blending our local businesses with market traders and artists. Each flea market offers a unique experience - expect the unexpected! It’s a delightful surprise every time.”
