Devizes Market


There is still something a bit traditional about a market with traders shouting their wares and doing their work with a bit of showman panache. And they still draw the crowds.

If I go to France, I quite often photograph stalls. One day, a few years ago, I really thought I’d do the same in England with my local market at Devizes.

Stones – some claimed to have mystical properties.

Cheese and bacon.


The fish man.

Just a small fraction of the market stalls are shown here. There is much, much more.

There’s a chance to buy much of what you might need as well as things you might want. It’s social too. You meet friends – both present ones and others from long ago. It is always good fun to linger in the market.
