Totnes is one of the founder towns of the now global movement.
Known as Transition Town, this initiative has attracted attention for its approach to issues in relation to economic and environmental sustainability. Honoured to be an incubator for a new vision of urban living, with a reputation for cutting-edge thinking, on a day-to-day basis Totnes retains a warm, friendly and a wonderfully relaxed ambience.
The general market takes place on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year and is held on the Civic Square, just off High Street at the top of the town.
Not to be missed is the Totnes Good Food Sunday which is on the third Sunday of each month throughout the year. Over 55 fantastic food traders travel from all over Devon to bring the very best food the region has to offer.
Held on three Tuesdays during December are the Christmas Markets where stalls sell seasonal goods while musicians and street entertainers enliven proceedings in this magical atmosphere.
