Pannier Market


There are a number of restaurants and cafes available on East Street and Broad Street and further afield. Also a number of Food shops and takeaways.  


The town's early wealth came from its importance as a centre for the wool trade, this declined in the 18th and 19th centuries and South Molton's role changed to a transport, administration and service centre. It flourished as a market town and expanded with the building of the Town Hall and Assembly rooms and the introduction of schools and many more local businesses. The church of South Molton is dedicated to St Mary Magdalene and is entered through an avenue of Lime trees. This is believed to be the third church on this site and was built during the 15th century. The tower has a peel of 8 bells that are rung regularly.

Tourism plays a very important part in the economy of South Molton and the surrounding area being situated in an ideal central position within easy reach of Exmoor, Dartmoor, the rugged north coast and the beautiful sandy beaches to the west.

The town still flourishes as a market town, population about 5000; with its square still surrounded by small local shops unspoilt and much the same as it has been for years. The main market day is Thursdays with an extra pannier market on Saturdays.

There are many buildings of interest in the town and an insight into the history of these Medieval, Georgian and Elizabethan buildings and the town itself can be found in the Heritage Trail which guides you around the town showing you glimpses of past and present and a wealth of interesting information.
