South Hams Markets

Please be advised that from (and including) Tuesday 24 March, all South Hams markets will be closed until further notice due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

This closure will affect Ivybridge, Kingsbridge and Totnes Friday and Saturday Markets.

The rationale behind this is decision is as follows:

  • While supermarkets are considered an essential service, markets have not been classified as such by the Government.
  • To support and maintain social distancing, at a time when the Government is asking people to stay at home.
We appreciate your understanding and support at this difficult time.

Samantha Deeley, SHDC Market Manager
