The Shambles The Sunday/Monday Curiosity Market will not be trading this coming weekend. But, we do have a number of other traders trading in its place on the Sunday and…
Market Place – Devizes Farmers & Artisan Market
Every first Saturday of the month.
Devizes Farmers and Artisan Market
In brief our Traders and Producers come from a 30-mile radius of Devizes and they have either grown, reared or made their products, generally using local grown/reared ingredients. The traders are very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging, so ask them a question about their product line, they are always happy to help.
The concept of a farmers’ market is not a new one. Far back in history farmers have bartered and sold goods. A farmers’ market simply sells locally produced goods to local people. Farmers’ markets benefit the locally environment by encouraging small-scale less intensive production, reducing the effects of long-distance transport of goods, and reducing packaging. They benefit producers and consumers by providing a social meeting point, giving them direct contact with each other, and encouraging goodwill and understanding between rural and urban populations.
Not all traders attend all each month – so there is space for more traders! If you want to check on particular availability, please make contact.

Get seen and help the Mayor’s 2020-21 Charity Fundraiser!
Chris Gay, Devizes’ Mayor, is looking for a handful of young devizes artists & illustrators to produce artwork for her chosen charities.

Profits from this intiative will go to Chris’s two chosen charities ~ Alzheimer’s Support, Sidmouth St. & Devizes CIL, Independent Living.
- You can apply if you are between 16-25 years old
- Designs should reflect ‘iconic and unique’ nature of Devizes, preferably featuring town landmarks or historic locations
- Designs should be wearable all year round (so not themed for a particular season)
- The designs may be printed or embroidered onto charity hoodies, polo-shirts and bags so please bear this in mind and ensure the design submitted works well at different sizes
