    Exeter has a cosmopolitan shopping centre which is an eclectic mix of ultra modern shopping arcades and old traditional buildings. The shopping streets are jam packed with every shop selling everything you would want and more! We called in on a busy Saturday afternoon when it was really busy, I would love to return on a quieter weekday to have a really good look round without having to avoid the masses!

    The City centre shopping area is nice and flat and has an extensive pedestrianised are which makes getting around a breeze.

    The Farmers Market: Is Slightly Removed

    An Exeter Afternoon :)

    is now on the corner of South and Fore Street, but still good for a free lunch!!! Dropped in this afternoon whilst I was awaiting the bus and a quick nibble of cheese from Norsworthy, a dip of Devon Chilli and a little toasty bit soaked in local honey. Yep, there is still a free lunch here in Exeter :)

    What to buy: Cheese here is superb - try Norsworthy's "Nanny Bloo" :) Local meat and game, pies, pickles and chutneys, organic veg - whatever, yep, well worth a visit!

    What to pay: As and what, not necessarily cheap but think QUALITY!

    Go gaga on Gandy Street

    by debtravers Written Oct 10, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gandy Street still has a medieval look with its cobbled road - has a great assortment of smaller shops and some good cafes/wine bars to grab some lunch. Take the alley beside Top Shop in the High Street; this leads to Gandy Street. Clayhanger has lots of quirky nick-nacks if you're present hunting.

    Head Over Heels: Gorgeous handmade handbags

    Hollywood jewelry hanger

    This is a gorgeous little shop that sells handmade handbags by Becky Oh, as well as shoes and a few other little knick-knacky girlie things.

    What to buy: One of the lovely handbags! I bought a jewelry hanger in the shape of a bust. It was called "hollywood" because of the ball gown it is wearing but there are all different themes.

    What to pay: £20 abouts

    Bedford Street Market: There Is Such A Thing As A Free Lunch!

    Obviously this is not a shop!

    Every Thursday Bedford Street hosts a "farmer's market".

    If you want a free lunch take a wander round and try all the samples on offer. Start with Pennie's canapes move on to nibbles of cheese and progress to sausages, take your time, go round twice and you needn't bother about lunch! I think you can even get bread and jam for pudding!

    I suppose you could also buy something too!

    What to buy: The market specialises in small local suppliers, seafood from Lyme Regis, chillies from the Devon Chilli Farm, local meats, cheeses, organic vegetables plus all sorts of bits and bobs.

    This is well worth a visit

    What to pay: Perhaps a tad more expensive than supermarket prices, but quality is everything.

    Exeter Shopping Centre: Shop till you drop

    Exeter is a great city for shopping, the best in Devon I feel. With there being a large university here there is the full range of chain stores, plus individual more unique clothes shops, one in particular I enjoy browsing around (& buying in) is called "The Real Mcoy" which has quite funky unusual clothes.

    I can pretty much guarantee you can pick up what ever you would want here.

    Ordenance Survey Shop: Maps Galore

    Map Shop, Exeter

    I just love this shop, I always pop in, maps galore, a fantastic selection of Lonely Planets, Olde Worlde globes, nice pens & stationary, much of the merchandise reminds me of the style of a gentlemans study.

    As you can see in the photo, the shop in in a wonderful Tudor building , built in 1596 over the lower two floors.

    What to buy: On my last visit I bought a really nice stationary set, cream paper & envelopes with a nice elephant print on. Not especially cheap, but unusual.

    Exeter is full of shops, shopping streets and shopping centers. It seems that people also come from the surrounding towns for a big shopping spree. You can find it all.
