Decided to visit the market whilst on a short trip. Lots of tasty and appetizing food to eat. However, not much other stalls, beside the food ones. However, it is worth a visit for some tasty food. Will visit again when in the area.

We spent a few hours strolling the market stalls and eating lunch. Nice variety of stalls for market produce, knick-knacks, handicrafts, and local lunch selections. Located at a 2-storey building, you are protected from the outdoor weather elements in a controlled, comfortable environment. Located in the downtown district, we took advantage of the free 2-hour street parking which was readily... More

For me, this is a very good indoor market, much better than the Toronto, St Lawrence Market which I find oppressive and stuck in the 70s. This market had a lot of charm, small but a big puncher. Excellent Asian food, and two stand our memories that will stay between me and my wife.

The market is well organized and has a good variety of things to eat, buy and look. The second floor could be better explored, though, has nice views and some atractions/shops. It was a rainy day, so not many people on the streets & market. Worth the visit. TIP: there's a free parking for up two hours on weekends in... More

For those who have been to Vancouver and visited Granville Island, you know what a great place that is to wander, shop and eat. Covent Market isn't at that level, but it's a pretty nice place to hang out while in London. Lots of authentic and tasty places to eat. Two that we tried on our short visit was the... More

The market has a large variety of food vendors, several restaurants and shops for buying gifts for yourself or your dog. From the Barkery to the Piping Kettle to the Cheese Store to the Tea Haus, there is something for everyone.

Its not what it was, now more a bunch of stands with generic produce, bought from the same supplier as the grocery store, food is like mall food court, but not as good. There are some treasures and some very good shops, but overall, not really what you'd expect. in a true market Would love to see more local food... More

I live a block away from the market, and love visiting here on a regular basis - whether it's just to grab a bite on the weekend for breakfast or lunch, or to pick up some fresh produce from one of their vendors. I also love grabbing gourmet chocolates in here from the Chocolate Factory! Be sure to check out... More
