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
The Farmers' Market is held on the second Saturday of the month in the Arts Centre. More information at Dorset Farmers' Market .
