Despite living near Haverfordwest - the finest example of the direst town planning in Wales that has killed this once lovely county town, we will travel the extra 45 minutes each way to shop in Carmarthen, and the market is always a port of call. Wonderful cymraeg/dutch cheeses from Caws Teifi, the freshest of veg, a watch battery changed for... More

Visited with my wife and daughter and was very disappointed. Building is lovely but the market itself is very poor, hardly any fresh produce apart from one poor fruit and veg stall and a quite good butchers. Few nice stalls selling welsh mementos and an ok sweet shop. Compared to other markets of similar size such as Abergevanny this is... More

I have watched Carmarthen evolve since my childhood and am impressed with the way in which the diversity of produce continues to thrive. Siop y Pentan is always on my visit list for good quality gifts and great value Welsh books.

This is a very nice market full of local produce. My favourite ones are the cheese stall, tea stall and music stall.

With such a great range and variety of stalls, Carmarthen market is the place to visit. If you want fresh, local produce, always served with a smile - head on down!

No trip to Carmarthen is complete without a trip to the market. If you go self-catering then stock up here and not in local supermarkets. You must try the local butter not packed in paper - real butter that you will not be able to get enough of. I stock up on cured and spiced Carmarthen Ham for my daughter... More
