Markets in Dorset
Visiting a Dorset market and chatting to the friendly stall holders about their wares will always be a memorable experience and a great way to get to know some local Dorset characters.
In a time when shoppers want to know the provenance of their food, it’s also a chance to find out where the produce has come from or how they were made.
A Dorset market for everyday of the week
Enjoy the hustle and bustle and colourful stalls of a typical English market. With an assortment of locally produced food, clothing, hand crafted jewellery, antiques, crafts, flowers and plants, materials, vintage and collectables, there will always be a bargain to be found. Visit a Dorset market somewhere in the county on any day of the week.

Farmers Markets can also be found around the county - pick up local fresh fish, free range eggs, dairy products and poultry, sausages and meats for your BBQ, fresh bread and pastries as well as vegetables. Seek out some of the best Dorset produce to sample and try before you buy.
If you enjoy browsing vintage and collectable markets, head for Bridport Vintage Market on the last Sunday of each month or Wimborne flea market every weekend.
