It is difficult to miss the market in the middle of Cambridge and nice to think that its history goes back to the Middle Ages. The local people have consistently resisted any attempt to turn the market into anything other than a working market. We locals buy our vegetables and fruit in the market and there is a fish stall...

A delightful market open on Saturdays and Sundays full of stalls selling fruit, veg, street food, crafts, clothes, artisan bread to die for, a really super market! Thoroughly recommend street food stalls, sit and eat your Thai curry near the fountain and soak up the atmosphere!

Outside if London this is one of the worst places I have ever visited. People are obnoxious and just barge elderly people out of the way, Bicycles are everywhere and you can't hear them until there are on top of you. Very difficult to park your car and when you can, the prices are obscene. I would recommend that you... More

This market is always interesting and the range of goods is excellent. It does get very crowded at peak times and in wet weather the paving slabs are slippery. We saw a lady negotiating it with Nordic walking poles and realised why when we discovered how slippery the surface is. However, it is well worth a visit and while the... More

We visited on a Sunday and were very surprised to find a Christmas Style Sunday Market in the square. It was great to wander around this market looking at lots of things that were very good to look at but bad for me to eat. A great shame. We did however do a little bit of shopping and enjoyed the...
