Traditional market in the middle of Carmarthen. Range of stalls. The best sell traditional Welsh produce - meats, cheese, Bars Brith. Some of the usual tacky shops along with traditional clothes for the elderly.

We all went here the other day just to see if we could get my computer fixed but decided to scour the stalls and we found everyone helpful except for the guy in the computer who we found a bit arrogant but other than that we had some food there and we enjoyed our shop.

Located on the right of the market as you enter through the main entrance. Definitely recommend visiting. From tasty fresh sandwiches/toasties, lasagnes, chicken and mushroom pie, local meat dinner to a variety of puds. All home made may I add!! Friendly hard working staff!!

It appears to be a struggling market, a lot of empty stalls and nothing out of the ordinary here, a shame but I guess it a sign of the times.

Very disappointing...! The surrounding new upmarket shopping development doesn't help it shows this little market area up...mind you none of the traders goods were exiting...! BEST thing about the place .... The little Cafe on the right of the main entrance... Very friendly ladies... AND... ham sandwiches at their best without being overcharged...!!

What you would expect from an indoor market. Not as friendly as I have come to expect from Carmarthen.
