My son and I visited this market on a Sunday. It was Sketchy at best. Most of the stalls were old CD's and DVD's, old clothing, and electronics.

This area is famous for antiques to clothes to tools to music. You can find lots of different wares in this covered and uncovered market in the East of the City.

The Barras is a unique part of Glasgow's history, one that people seem to either love or hate. It was always a place where you could find cheap tat and stuff off the back of a lorry, but there were occasional gems among the dross. It's harder to find these gems now, at least at a bargain price, as the... More

The barras are an institution in Glasgow, the place has lost some of it's mojo but it's still a nice Sunday destination.

When I lived on Glasgow I was a regular at the barras it has one of the best butchers in Glasgow. Took my kid to candy crunch where staff were very patient with her.

Fag smoking stall holders, rude and abusive service especially the old women selling old tat. Scary place watch you dont get mugged. Just pointless, it needs pulled down.

After reading many reviews here it's sad that people are slating the Barras market. The common denominator is that people reviewing seem to say that the decline is evident since the last time they had visited, 5 years earlier 2 years ago etc etc. but in fact they are too blind to see that's exactly why there are less stalls...
