Really nice open market. Foods, Muleys, bee and gifts of local producers. During Christmas time the lights and the street at night are beautiful. The freezing weather gives a special charm to this lovely street.

Close to Piccadilly Station, with trams running through the area plus Piccadilly Gardens where the Manchester wheel is. The area is full of shops with restaurants and bars. Not an attraction but a connection to the shopping area.

Although Market Street is just a shopping area, it is traffic free most of the day, it has the usual shops,stores and chains but the older buildings add to the atmosphere. The Arndale. centre down one side is a mall/maze but it has every possible outlet you can think of. Across Cross Street you have M&S and more designer label... More

I wandered along Market Street on my way to Piccadilly Station. The usual selection of shops and restaurants, similar to many high streets world-wide. Not worth making a special trip to visit.

Great for shopping but the cobbles and poor state of the paving in general, making walking a pain for some people with walking issues - all very uneven.

So Market Street Manchester is where you will find the second and third division shops. Anne Summers and various sports shops. You've got the picture. If its high end you want then head to King Street

Good shops and the Arndale Centre, but also a street where you find the best buskers so free entertainment since you don't have to give them money if you don't want to. They don't hassle people so it's up to the individual. There are some seats in the street, but being a bustling city centre they aren't always free so... More

Walking down Market Street on a sunny day you get the real feel of Manchester.Yes there are lots of buskers and people selling things but it is vibrant and friendly. Don't see the point in using the back streets I feel safer on Market Street.
