Markets & Market Rights

Mendip District Council operates and runs its own stall market service.

Mendip's Stall Markets 

We operate and manage seven weekly stall markets in the Mendip towns. These markets sell Somerset produce, food and drink, crafts and a range of general items. In addition, a Christmas market takes place in Wells leading up to the festive season.
