BARNSTAPLE Pannier Market has been praised as a "Devon delight" in a recent national trade publication.
A reporter, from Market Trader newspaper, undertook a mystery shop of the market and reported how impressed he was with its many aspects. He described it as "massive, lofty, light, airy and stunning", with the produce for sale "universally excellent".
The acclaim comes as the market, managed by North Devon Council, has reported a 25 per cent rise in custom since the recession began.
Market manager, Simon Curry, said: "This is a great accolade for the market and all its traders, especially to be recognised this way by our industry peers.
