Kingsbridge Farmers’ Market

1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. You'll find everything you'd expect from a farmers' market and more. Fruit and vegetables with as many as possible locally grown. A glistening array of fresh fish and crab landed locally. The smell of freshly baked bread and pastries still warm from the oven. Fresh meat served by the farmers who tended their livestock, properly hung and from contented animals. Luscious handmade cakes, a wide range of homemade preserves and sauces, cheeses, locally grown flowers, plants and herbs, pate's, pies, pasties and honey from Dartmoor. Free range eggs and local ale. An interesting and varied selection of local craft stalls - perfect for a gift to take home or for treating yourself. Well worth a visit to Kingsbridge Town Square between 9am - 1pm on the first and third Saturday of the month.

Together Without You – Exhibition

Harbour House in Kingsbridge is the venue for an exhibition of drawings by Cary Lee. Together Without You opens at the south Devon gallery on Tuesday 19 November. There will be an evening opening view on Friday 22 November from 6 – 8 pm. Cary says, “Grief framed me, so the wreath became the frame. Together Without You presents a collection of pencil drawings which conflate the existence of isolation and connection, of grief and love; of feeling broken, and of being whole.” An Australian artist who settled in Devon in 2014, Cary studied Visual Arts in both Australia and America before developing a career in the mental health sector. He later moved to Granada in Spain and embraced his art through looking, seeing, recording and drawing. Cary has exhibited in Australia, in Perth and Sydney, and more recently in London. This is his first exhibition in Devon. Together Without You opens at Harbour House on Tuesday 19 November. Opening times will be 10 am – 5 pm daily until the close of the show on Sunday 24 November. Everybody is welcome to the evening gallery viewing on Friday 22 November from 6 – 8 pm. Admission is free. Together Without You An exhibition of drawings by Cary Lee 19 – 24 November 2019 10 am – 5 pm Opening view: Friday 22 November, 6 – 8 pm Admission free
