Lovely fruit and veg stalls and the fresh bread and buns are immense! Loads of different things to buy here but they are at Cambridge tourist prices. Definately worth a look as there are so many different things to buy.

Cambridge is quickly losing much of its character, with the chain stores to be found in any city pushing out the more characterful places but at least the market retains some individuality even if the stores flanking it have less than at one time.

There's nothing special about this market, it's the same as you can get anywhere in England, nice to have an occasional wonder round though. Can sometimes pick up a bargain

We passed the market on the city sightseeing bus and decided to go back to it to look around. The area surrounding it is great; there are a lot of colleges and historical churches around it which were cool to look at. The market itself was a typical market that I have seen in England; it was small but it... More

a traditional market, which is fairly large and numerous offerings including two different cheese stalls, good flowers and veg stalls. A great old fashion market with the delights of Cambridge and the Grand Arcade next door
