Market exceeds expectations

Honiton’s street market praised.

Honiton’s market days are proving a great success and have exceeded the town council’s expectations, it has been revealed.

The town mayor, Councillor Vernon Whitlock, praised the hard work of the market staff at a public meeting last week in Honiton Town Council’s chambers in New Street.

He said: “The past year has seen improvements in the street market with increased numbers of traders and entertainers in the town on market day. The income has exceeded our expectations.”
