Went on a Saturday and the market was full of vendors selling everything you can imagine. Bought a big hunk of cheese and some fruit. The vendors all seemed nice and friendly and some offered tastings of their wares. If you love markets, as I do, this is a fun place to wander for a while.

I like markets - so I like visiting this place. The open market has a great selection of fruits and vegetables - all at very reasonable prices, while the adjoining indoor market majors in meat and seafood - again with great variety and value. They also maintain the old market style whereby stall holders shout out about the quality and... More

As with the Rag Market this place is great so much choice. Wall to Wall stalls and great stall holders. Worth a visit just to wander round something might catch your eye.

Most of fruits are rotten. I have decided to buy apples, garlic and sweet potatoes. Strawberries never tasted good. Apricots always tastes way too acidic. The pineapple I bought was half rotten. Fruits go bad in a day or two. The indoor market is okay, but there is only one shop I buy from. I know that everyone says there... More

A market at the heart of the city comprising the Birmingham Open, Rag and Indoor Market ..... one of the best places in the region for shopping ..... not to be missed for fresh fruit, veg, fish & seafood if you're ever in the city.

We bought some fresh chicken breast meat..what a bargain. So surprised to find that the stall was selling 5 kg for £20.. Really cheap. Good for freezing, it's going to last ages. Very varied food stalls..worth visiting.

It is true that you can find a lot of bargains but the butchers copy each others by giving out the same offers and the same cuts of meat. Same for fishmongers. No one offer game meat, va, wild board, Italian hams and cured meats........

good market with pretty much everything. i don't always use it when in Brum, but I do like a good bargain and there are plenty of those here. don't go buying your melons from the supermarket when you can get them bigger and cheaper here. lots of meat at great prices too.

Thank rayraysworld
