Brayford Farmers Market - Brayford Village Hall 2nd Saturday of each month

The Brayford Village & Farmers Market - 2019 Runner-up of Best Farmers Market in all of Devon!

A local and traditional Market with unusual things from our countryside!

There will be local meats from Bess Hill Farm Shop, local sausages, & quiche & freshly made sausage rolls from South West Cheese Shop, Exmoor honey & fresh eggs, fresh Devon pasties & a range of freshly baked breads from East & West Bakery, savoury local handmade pies, local ales & ciders, arts & crafts, handmade childrens’ clothing, and scrumptious sweets. In addition, Ruth’s tea, coffee, and homemade biscuits & cakes available. 

We will also have a "Ukraine Appeal" for anyone wishing to contribute cash directly to the refugees in Eastern Europe through churches in the border countries of Ukraine. This is a cash only donation point, and will go through the High Bray Church Restricted Fund for this "Ukraine Appeal", as mentioned in our notice above.

No entry fee.  

We will be asking our stallholders to wear masks, and encouraging those who come to do so as well when they are not at the tea tables. There will be sanitiser at the doors. These are trying times for us all and we hope to be able to provide a ‘proper’ Market that is safe and enjoyable.

The Market is held on the 2nd Saturday of each month at the Village Hall; all are welcome!

Come and enjoy yourself for a wonderful outing and support the Village and local producers!

Postponement of Fundraising Events.

In view of the extremely high covid infection rates it has been decided to postpone the BINGO evening planned to take place on Saturday 22nd January 2022 and the Ferret Racing evening on Saturday 19th February 2022.

We realise this will be a disappointment to many but feel we cannot take the risk of spreading the Omicron variant throughout the village.

As soon as the level of infections reduce we will reschedule both events.

Brayford Village & Farmers Market

Brayford Village & Farmers Market

We are seeing a sudden increase of Covid infections in the area, and gathering together, which we all want to do, will just put our vulnerable and our youngest members of the family at risk. With regret, we are postponing our January 8th Village & Farmers Market to February 12th at the Village Hall. We hope to see you all then!

High Bray Church - COVID UPDATE

With Covid racing through our Village and community, we have decided that holding our traditional Christmas Eve Lessons and Carols Service at High Bray Church just wouldn’t be responsible, putting our friends and neighbours at greater risk.

All of us are very disappointed, as that community celebration is a joyous part of our Christmas; but we’re looking forward to 2022!

With our wishes to all for a better and healthier New Year.

High Bray Church has been open to our Village for over 800 years: for Services, Easter & Harvest Celebrations, weddings & funerals, and more recently 'Puddings & Song', Bell Ringers, the Singing Group, and the School Christmas Play.

Now the tower needs urgent repair, and if not repaired, it will limit the use of our Church.

This auction is to help raise the £32,000.00 which is needed to repair the church tower. All proceeds will go to the tower repair project. We are very grateful for any support you can offer!

The online auction is LIVE now - please use the link below to get involved.
