Weather in Watchet

Watchet's Summer Market


St. Decumans Church

There has been a market in Watchet since the 13th century and this tradition continues today with the lively and colourful Watchet Summer Market. Every Wednesday, from May to September, brightly-coloured gazebos are erected on The Esplanade, overlooking the harbour and marina, and traders arrive to offer the best of local produce and craft.

The season kicks off in full swing on WEDNESDAY 1 MAY 2019 and continues every Wednesday up to, and including, WEDNESDAY 25 SEPTEMBER 2019


As in 2018, stalls for single weeks may be reserved by local community groups to raise funds or awareness of their work benefiting the Watchet community, so contact us to book a date.

The main 2019 season runs from 21st May to 25th September, with stalls trading from 9.30am to 4.00pm. 2018 was a very successful market season, with stalls offering cheeses and chutneys, bakery goods, cakes and chocolate, garden plants, books, local art and crafts, gifts, antiques and curios, and fresh fish. We hope to make 2019 even better.
