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. Often overlooked, and looked down by those who can't look pass the front door of Tesco; if you're smart, you'll shop there yourself. A market at the heart of... More

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.

I stayed in Birmingham for about 4 months, and I often visited this market. As an Indonesian citizen, I couldn't believe that there were many fruits, vegetables and other foodstuffs I thought I could only find them in Indonesia sold here.

The cheapest and healthiest food place in Birmingham. When you visit open market around closing you can get two for one price. It is much cheaper if we compare with indoor market and other food chain markets. Worth to visit.

What a real contrast. I arrived in Birmingham parked in the Moor Lane car park and took the footbridge into Selfridges. Then you leave this Mecca of artificial market and enter the open-air reality of the real Birmingham Markets. I am always amazed at how some of these traders make a living - and what you can actually buy. Have... More

Been going to the market every Thursday for the last two years. I go without a list, just rucksack and big hessian bag. I always start at Barlows fish, just buy whats looking good, if something is too small, they alwys have stuff round the back, and turbot to die for. One of the best fishmongers is H Satchwell. A...
