“A Market”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Having known the original markets in Kidderminster all of my life, I find the street market very average. Apart from the local produce stalls and the Kinver food outlet, I would not go for anything else. There is great difficulty parking around the town on market days, which also creates a problem if transport is needed. The old Market building is empty but the memories of it still live in the hearts of the locals.

“It's OK but..”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I went a few times prior to Christmas, and it varied considerably how many stalls were on offer, and I wouldn't say there was a great variety of stalls. There were some nice ones selling gifts, a few with lovely handmade items, some nice locally produced food (and some not) and the usual cheapy stalls for pet treats, bedding, handbags, smokers stuff, cushions, clothes etc. A fish and a meat stall, fruit and veg, jams, cakes (not homemade, mass produced).

It had a sad lack of atmosphere, and none of the stalls were ever very Christmassy, even on the day of the Christmas Lights switch on. To be brutally honest, most of the items on offer could have been bought from the shops in that part of town, which these days are mostly pound/discount shops and selling for the same or less in those shops.

It would be fine to pass a couple of hours for a visitor to the town, but I don't think it would attract regular visits from locals or returns from visitors.
