Fresh produce, a variety of stalls, passionate and friendly people and a bustling marketplace is what you'll find here. It's always worth a visit if you're in town and there's usually some kind of musical act happening on the corners. It's so nice to see a decent market around these days!

It was refreshing to meet passionate people who not only believe in their products and produce, but can tell you how it's made or produced. Found some great coffee and enjoyed sampling some fresh juice slushies.

The market has open air stalls of flowers, fruit, clothes, sweets, records, souvenirs and arts & crafts, old bric a brac and few places which cater for cuisines from around the world. I walked there briefly to see the atmosphere and I had a fresh fruit juice drink.

The market runs every day except Sundays and is a great place to purchase a little bit of everything. On Sundays, they have a food market with organic foods. There has been a market here since the Middle Ages. Although not a real large market, it is definitely worth going to if you are in Cambridge.

A trip to 'the other place' is never complete without a trip to the market. I always go to the spice stall to see whats new .. Amazing selection from around the globe.. Check out the amazing smoked paprika ! ( reviewer lives near Oxford )

Just as any other market, Cambridge's has its own charm. Small, with various stalls, you could find there both italian food and old CDs, as well as some souvenirs and simple household stuff. It didn't take us much time to take a look at all the rows. Although we didn't buy anything, I'd still recommend visiting this place just for... More

Right in the centre of Cambridge you will find a really permanent (7 days a week) market. The stalls do change on different days .... so a tip ...... if you see something, buy it, because the stall may not be there if you come back on a different day. As a general rule the Saturday market is really full... More
