Since the late 1990s, the Exeter Matford Antique and Collectors Fair has been welcoming antique traders and collectors to the cathedral city in the sleepy south west of England. Over the years it has steadily grown, and now welcomes up to 150 vendors each time the market opens its doors. It is known in the area for being one of the few antique markets that takes place only on a Saturday, and since it is not that regular an occurrence it is definitely worth making a note of the dates of this market and being in the area at the right time!
Vendors set up both indoors and outdoors at the Exeter Matford Antique and Collectors Fair. This means that come rain or shine, shopping and browsing here can still be enjoyed. It feels as though every taste is accounted for at this awesome antique market, and items have a great range in price too so no one will be left wanting. Collectors might want to arrive when doors open for the best chance at snagging the most sought after goods, and bargaining skills should always be employed to get the very best deal.
Visitors attending the Exeter Matford Antique and Collectors Fair are guaranteed a great variety in the items for sale. Fantastic pieces of furniture both large and small can be seen, alongside jewellery, crystalware, ornaments, vases and other china ware, textiles, artwork, signage, clocks, abacuses and more. It can certainly take a while to try and get around to all the stalls, and the whole day can easily be spent here.
Plenty of refreshments are available at the Exeter Matford Antique and Collectors Fair. There is a restaurant on site so shoppers do not even have to leave the market setting.
