There was a vender selling ostrich burgers. Little gamey and dry but not bad??.. Other than that it is run of the mill market square... nothing special.

Was so quaint and awesome to walk around shopping with such terrific town merchants. The people in Cambridge were warm and kind folks. Town square shopping was so much fun.

Visited on a Thursday. Loved just wandering round this market. The fruit and veg looked SO fresh, as did the bread. There were oils and spices, clothes and souvenirs. A good variety of things for sale and a superb atmosphere.

A tempting place to get rid rid of money on beautiful things. I bought a shaggy rug for £65 and some chufa which you blend into a healthy drink. Lovely food all around and there seems to be different stalls on different days.

The best thing about the market is the sweets stall. I sound like a 4 year old rather than a 40 year old, but go gets sweets. The sweet stall is large and has been selling there since, well over 40 years!

This is just a street market selling the usual tat BUT pick your days to see specialist stalls like the tailor or jewellery repairer or bread and cheese. There are some excellent fruit,veg and flower stalls around the edge but i suppose mainly used by locals. Be careful when you venture in as the cobbles can be dangerous.. However it... More

This is just another market in an overly touristy town. We did enjoy some food from the bakery stall but otherwise just ho hum ordinary.

Right in the heart of Cambridge is the lively market square with it's many food and vendor booths. Try the Belgian waffles (plain and hot, SO GOOD) or some delicious local fruits. We visited during rainy and on sunny days and its a great place to pick up some delicious foods - no matter the weather. There are some traditional... More
