Exeter’s Fore Street Flea returns

Exeter’s popular destination street market, the Fore Street Flea, makes a welcome return to the city on Sunday 12th September.

The Fore Street Flea celebrates Exeter’s independent West Quarter and will be open to the public between 12pm – 4pm.

More than just a market, visitors can expect a unique mix of stalls at this free event, including local contemporary artists and makers, vintage fashion, collectables and furniture, plus street food and children’s activities. Many of Fore Street’s independent shops and cafes will also be open on the day with exclusive Fore Street Flea offerings.

With new features for this event, this Fore Street Flea is set to bring more fun for families than ever.  Visitors will be joined by artist, Scott Walker, whose freestanding interactive art installation ‘The Pentagon’ encourages people to colour in its hand-drawn designs, creating a 5 metre long, eye-catching piece of community artwork in the process. Street performers Bumblina: The Queen Bee and Treemendous will also entertain families with their stunning acts.

Ann Hunter, InExeter’s BID Manager says “The Fore Street Flea is a brilliant community event for Exeter and we’re excited to see the event return to the West Quarter. Following a virtual Fore Street Flea earlier in the year, this is the perfect opportunity to rediscover and celebrate this creative and diverse neighbourhood of the city and its wonderful mix of independent businesses and market traders. For lovers of handmade, vintage and artisan finds, this event is not to be missed!”

This is the first of a number of Fore Street Fleas that will happen between September 2021 and March 2022. If you’re a Devon-based artist, maker, second-hand collector or street food vendor and would like to trade at a future Fore Street Flea, visit the Eventbrite link here:

Fore Street Flea is a not-for-profit event.

Fore Street will be closed to traffic and fully pedestrianised for the market, allowing this family-friendly event to take over the street.
