Winter Market 2021
For 2021 stalls are available both outdoors in the Market Square and indoors at the Corn Exchange. In the Corn Exchange we will see the return of the Makery Market which will host the best selection of local arts and crafts and beautiful bespoke items. Our updated trading and set up times are listed below. Outdoors we will have a range of stalls and Hot Food and Drink.
If you are unable to fill a stall for the full duration of the market please still get in touch and we will be glad to welcome you for a shorter stint!
If you are interested in booking a stall at the Devizes Winter Festival complete our initial enquiry form found at the bottom of this information.
Each year we run our own mulled wine stall, which raises much needed funds for DOCA. We also work with our sponsor The Vaults, who provide a Christmas bar, so will not be seeking new vendors looking to run their own bars unless their offer is significantly different.
All enquiries to trade at any of the markets over this weekend must be made directly to DOCA.
DOCA is looking to phase single use plastics out of all of their events. We will look more favourably on traders who share this ethos and use alternatives such as wooden cutlery or vegware, cans over plastic bottles and are actively more environmentally friendly about their packaging. This form part of our selection process.

POWER: Power is limited to one large generator which restricts the flexibility of the location we can position the stalls. Hiring it in is also a large expense for us and subsequently we have to charge you. If you have your own silence, non-smelly generator please consider bringing it along if you require power, if you emit fumes we will ask you to switch your generator off. Please state clearly your power requirements. Please bring your own gazebo which will need to be suitably weighted down.
