A whole weekend of shopping and entertainment in South Molton

Last year (December 2015) thousands of people from across North Devon and beyond visited South Molton to go to The Winter Wonderland market on the evening of December 4th 2015, which was part of  three days of festive fun at the town’s Winter Wonderland festival.

The event, run by the South Molton Business Association has received lots of compliments and endorsements from traders and visitors alike. Here is one email below:


I’m just passing on a message from my mum and her friends who took part in the Winter Wonderland on Friday in a craft stall. She wanted to say how pleased she was with the event and that she will definitely be booking for next year. Is it possible to book these now?

Merry Christmas!

FOOD FEST- Sunday 29 March 2015

FOOD FEST- Sunday 29 March 2015

south_molton_food_fest_flyer_final_draftOn Sunday 29 March, the South Molton Business Association (SMBA) will be hosting the town’s first Food Fest, in The Pannier Market.

 The event will use the successful North Devon Food Fest as a model.  So expect loads of food and drink stalls, showcasing both fresh produce as well as many different delicious cooked foods, be that hog roasts, curries, or traditional fayre such as breads, pies and pastries.  As well as a plethora of savouries the aim is to fill the market with stalls selling mouth watering cakes, biscuits, and fruit filled jams and spicy chutneys.  And as the area is fortunate to have cider and fruit juice producers, there will be the opportunity to try a real Devon tipple and locally produced ales.

SMBA is a non profit making organisation, but any funds raised by the Food Fest, as with all the other events we run, will be ploughed back into the local community.

To book and secure your stall for Sunday 29 March South Molton Food, please complete the attached form.  Either post the form enclosing a cheque payable to “South Molton Business Association” or email the form and pay by BACS with the reference “Food fest”.  Full details on timings etc will be sent with receipts.

Prices for one day in the pannier market are inclusive of table hire:

10′ frontage  =  £30.00                    20′ frontage  =  £60.00                          Electricity = £5.00
