The market needs a good clean, the cobbles are slippery and uneven and it is hard to walk on and the area is very congested.The only stall that I go to is the flower stall which has reasonably priced plants. The other stalls are overpriced, especially the vegetable stall. The bread stall is covered in flies in warm weather. The... More

I love how cozy it is and how many things you can buy. Loved the stall where you could build your own vintage cupcake-fruits-whatever stand.

As it is so central it is certainly worth a browse - it is a small market and a fair amount of food stalls. I like to support local so bought a few bits.

In Glasgow we have the Barras and in Cambridge 'you' have the Market Square. The site was once larger however it is still big enough to have room for a huge range of stalls which sell just about everything and it's a permanent feature. We enjoyed the diversity of foods on offer and in particular the stalls that sold unusual... More

I love Cambridge , and the market square is a traditional gem.. It's a normal market with some great fruit and veg stalls. Food, clothes and general kniknaks. Unlike some city markets, it's not a rip off but a truly competitive market surrounded by really nice shops and buildings. I recommend a good browse.

There are lots of fresh produce like bananas, apples etc etc, a variety of stalls, friendly people and a vibrant marketplace. It is worth a visit if you're in town and there's usually some kind of musical acs nearby. And musical meetings are advertise for this month ie october, according to the tourist centre. Just in passing, I would like... More

If you like Markets then you will like these markets, I was with two friends and we decided to have a look through the market stalls which had a wide variety of food, clothing, almost anything you could think of. Also the Market square has plenty of restaurants around to also browse for a place to eat. Market Square is... More

Now this is one of a dieing past time, being Abel to walk around the stands selling all different types of produce, it's just a shame there are not more examples as good as this up and down the country in stead of all the faceless supermarkets that they have been replaced with. Enjoy the experience it's one worth having
