Go and do this. It really is an experience that takes you back to the old days when supermarkets didn't exist and this was the way that people shopped!! It's cheap and cheerful and some really really great bargains to be had on the fresh vegetable stalls. Go and enjoy it. Enter in to the spirit and take it all... More

We wanted to go to the Birmingham Christmas markets that we had done in years gone by as we are both Brummies and need a trip... More

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.
