We visited the market on a Saturday, and really it is just few stalls selling a limited range of goods. At least it was generally cheap. If you are in the shopping area on Christchurch Road, the charity shops are very good.

Found this market a bit underwhelming it's is more of a locals market than a visitors market great for buying fresh fruit and vegetables etc but not gifts . The seafront in Boscombe is very nice though .

We took the prom train to the market that promised to be the ‘Go to’ venue for the widest range of fresh produce at affordable prices, and has become a mecca for chefs and passionate amateur cooks and those who just happen to love eating...More

I live down the road and we often walk to town on a Saturday. I've lived locally for over 30yrs so know this market well. It is seriously lacking in variety and quality goods. Seems to be a lot of foreign stalls now where it...More

I used to enjoy shopping at this market but now it's a shadow of it's former glory. A few stalls just about makes a market and what's on sale isn't the best of goods.

There was no existing option to pick for Boscombe high-street, so I've picked the market option, the Boscombe market has plenty of stalls and the classic mobile Butcher shop, I like Boscombe high-street even more than Bournemouth high-street, there are lots of charity shops, although...More

Although there is a big shopping centre I feel that over the years Boscombe has gone downhill with many empty shops now. The market itself can be good but only medium size. A visit to the Sovereign Shopping centre is worthwhile.
