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.
New Market Traders
Please visit our New Market Traders if you would like to register your interest in having a stall at one of our markets.
Mendip District Council have the sole right to hold a market within the district. We do allow other markets to take place and ask that you contact the Events Team to find out if you need to apply for permission to hold a market.
