Bridport and West Bay
Bridport is a Gateway Town for the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast. It is also a Beacon Town promoting the high quality and variety of local food. Street Markets are held every Wednesday and Saturday in this historic market town.
Bridport has a wide, vibrant and eclectic cultural mix of exhibitions and events, with national and international links.
View event calendar.
Bridport Town Council, working with community groups, local businesses and organisations, has assembled the information on this website, which we trust will provide a useful reference for both residents and visitors alike.
Weekly Wednesday and Saturday Markets take place in Bridport's three main streets throughout the year, from 8am until mid afternoon.
Bridport's large street market has a good selection of stalls selling foodstuffs, clothing and hardware, flowers and plants, pictures and paintings, books and IT goods ...and much more. Many of the traders are long established and use the distinctive Bridport Market bags when selling their goods.
The Saturday market is particularly popular with traders, a special attraction is the large number of antique and Bric-a-Brac stalls located in lower South Street. Anyone wishing to trade in the Street market should contact Bridport Town Council for an information application pack which is also available here. See also www.bridportmarket.com
