This is the most bustling area in Manchester, worth a ten-minute walk. You can see all high street shops here. And along the street are usually many stalls selling toys or fruits. But don't expect to find any nice restaurant here.

... just about sums it up. Not an "attraction" really. There are more attractive places to shop in more refined architectures too.

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.
