Dorset Farmers' Markets
This Saxon market town is situated on the picturesque coast road to Exeter. The traditional manufacture of ropes, twine and netting is still carried on here – in addition to supplying most of the cordage for the Fleet in earlier times, the town also provided the hangmans' ropes which gave rise to the phrase 'a Bridport dagger'.
The wide main streets afford attractive views of the surrounding hills, the magnificent coastline and agricultural land around. The highly successful regular farmers' market is held in the Arts Centre on the second Saturday each month (9am - 1pm) and in recent years has been voted 'the best Farmers Market in Dorset'. This market regularly attracts over 30 producers.
