We has a lovely weekend in Devon, if not a little windy and a bit chilly by the sea, but always good for a bit of a change of scene and blow the cobwebs away. If your in the area, i would highly recommend a visit to Exeter Christmas Market. This is in the centre of Exeter and sits in the shadow of the spectacular Exeter Cathedral, which is an amazing backdrop and when the light starts to drop it is stunning as they have lit this up in a wonderful way.
There is an amazing array of food stalls selling everything from vegan food to burgers, crepes to hogs! And there was food that was catered to gluten free people too! i had a gluten free crepe which i have to say was really yummy! There is a marquee to rest your wearing legs and warm up with some mulled wine maybe or meet friends.
There is a good array of stalls to look around with everything from Christmas type gifts, stocking fillers, unusual gifts, crafts and artisan food gifts to large items such as clothes, home items, and lots more. We came out with an amazing light for our porch which was salvaged from a ship, several tubes of fake snow, big handmade chocolates, glass hand made Christmas ornaments and full tummies!
