“Disappointing and expensive.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

Hadn't been to the Barras in years and decided to give it a go. Nothing worth buying, shoddy merchandise at high prices and an overall waste of time.

“Won't change”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

Visited the barras today (12.05.12) managed to get a parking space next to glasgow green and it was free and just a short walk to the barras. Many different stalls inside and outside we were hungry and spotted a market cafe with a yellow sign and desided to go in. We found that there was 6 people and one wee young boy about 5 behind the counter not something you want to see when people are cooking food.

The seats were old and not comfortable and the food was poor for high prices and looked like they had been over cooked , in the barras you tend to pick up so bargains and its busy on a weekend....

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

Desided to go to the baras as it was start of jan and you defo get a good bargain the weather was alright but was not that busy.

Anyone that goes mind and park in the waste ground next to glasgow green you won't have to use the parking meters....

“A junkyard”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2011

This place is a collection of crap! Plain and simple. Imagine the worst yard or garage sale; now imagine it spread over a couple city blocks. It was dirty, nasty, had nothing worth getting. We couldn't wait to get out of there. Trust me; don't go.
