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

If mooching around a market is your thing here you will find a wide range of stalls to browse. From hats to cheese, from vintage clothing to home made jams. It's all here and well worth the time to take in. Around the edge of the market are also good restaurants to tempt you. One thing, watch out in Cambridge... More

There was a good variation in the products that were for sale in the stalls. I bought a 45-year old LP for £10. I have not cleaned the vinyl yet so I don't know if it was worth the tenner. But, unless it's completely wasted at the micro level, it should be a bargain. My daughter bought a shoulder bag... More

Great market, worth a visit. All sorts of goods from arts and crafts to music to lots of tasty food stalls. Highlights are the Bratwurst stall (order a currywurst) and the Ostrich farm burger/meat stall there on Sundays.

This is a busy market with a large variety available, from clothes & books to international foods & fresh produce. There is also a few souvenir stores. It's in a great, central location & the people who sell things there are very friendly. It's worth a visit.

While one is likely to pass through or by Market Square, it really does not merit much more than a cursory glance as there is nothing special about it these days.

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.
