This is a good market with good variety and reasonable prices. It is also indoors so the weather won't affect your visit. As with the rag market it is easy to get to by public transport

Good selection of fruit and veg, and what i would call trinkets, odds and sods, nothing of particular note and overall atmosphere a tad on the rough side when compared to markets overseas.

Comprising the Birmingham Open, Rag and Indoor Markets, the Birmingham Market's is one of the best places in the region for shopping, and up there in the best in the country.

An amazing market and this is a londoner saying this. The fruits and vegetables were so fresh and so cheap. People were friendly I ended up taking more fruit and veg home then I did anything else mum just laughed.
