“Small Market with some character”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Nice little market and a few interesting stalls that sell unusual products, but too many selling over priced poor quality items. I would however recommend finding the small shop on the front of the church that adjoins the market square as they sell some fair trade products which are well worth a look.

“Cluttered”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

This place was busy though not my cup of tea, though we did have a nice cuppa upstairs in the cafe. If you like markets there were plenty of stalls here

“small & crampt”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

went to Durham city indoor market, but was a bit disappointed with walking around could not enjoy taking in the stalls as the walkway's are far to small, you have to stop quite often to let other people walk past especially if other people are looking at the stall's and it is a no no if you are taking a buggy/pram, nice little indoor market though

“Very interesting place!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

My friend and I visited the Market Hall for the first time in a long time, and there are lots of unusual stalls - there aren't many places left like this now. We were intrigued by the kiosk devoted to tobacco and related items - not that many people smoke nowadays.
We had a good look round then visited the cafe upstairs for some lunch. I have to admit it was not the best lunch we've had. I had a chicken dinner and my friend had a beef dinner. The beef was very tough and the chicken was very dry, so this spoiled it for a start. The gravy was just bog standard gravy mix and there wasn't much of it. Other diners were having breakfasts and quiches etc, so maybe that should have told us something!
All in all, though, we enjoyed our visit to the market.
