As a proud Glaswegian, i have absolutely on idea why some people from my city recommend going here as a tourist attraction. Its no better than a filthy flea ridden pick pockets paradise selling junk that no one wants or needs. Given the health and safety standards that Glasgow City Council enforce for other city businesses, Im surprised that this... More

Visited on a Sunday morning. Oh where has the Barras gone hardly anything open but hey the traders still up there with the best. Lovely people but all feeling despondent as they feel the market will be closed. From its glory days how sad to see this great institution in such a sad state.

Visited The Barras recently. I was extremely disappointed. Not what I expected at all. it was more like a junk sale than a market. Sadly not what it was in it's heyday. Another casualty of the big out of town discount stores.

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
