Love taking my children here for amazing street food and shopping. So many different food choices, I could stop off at multiple vans in one day ;)

The market is quite large with plenty of different stalls. It is worth a visit as it sits right in the centre of Cambridge and is surrounded by great shopping

The market is open every day in Cambridge, so whilst it might not be an absolute must see, it's always nice for a wonder around. There is a mix of stalls, fruit and veg, music, cheese, clothes etc.

Regular city centre market with lots to offer. Fruit, vegetables, plants, jewellery, earthenware, cheese, bread, fish, flowers, second hand books and a myriad of clothes, toys etc Only problem is parking. Use one of the multi-stories and have a good wander. Entertaining places to eat including ostrich burgers. Stalls vary throughout the week and it's a bit different on Sundays,... More

Whenever I'm in Cambridge shopping I always find time for a wander around this market. Very handily located just outside M&S food store. There are 2 fabulous cheese stalls which, although not as cheap as other places, sell the most amazing cheeses. Worth a visit just for that!! There are a few fruit and veg stalls but the main attraction... More

Right in the center of town and easy to get to from any bus with a variety of wares. The flowers and food were my favorites. Right around the corner from beautiful King's College and across from a grocery store.

Whatever the weather you will find a great selection of stalls here, with an eclectic collection of wares for sale. From greengrocer you to cheese, cakes and hot food, to wonderful paintings, vinyl records, jewellery, too much to mention. Great little market.

The Market Square in Cambridge is a real highlight with enough charm and character, a wide range of stalls offering fruit, veg and other items a must visit.

I visit this market fairly frequently and have to say that the stalls stay pretty much the same. I am not that interested in the old books/records but appreciate that for some people this would be a real draw. The jewellery/pottery etc I find is better in the little craft market rather than here, but the bread and cheese stalls... More

I've visited this market numerous times in the past years. You can find many different stalls selling things such as (local) produce, bread, olives, cheese, world food, clothes, accessories, gifts, records, books, bikes, flowers and so on. The market isn't too big so it doesn't take too much time to go past each stall. It's on every day except for... More
