I read about this market prior to my hour long trek to the park and ride area. Wish I had not bothered. Most of the stalls were selling food as take away snacks/meals. I was told this is a famous market and very diverse. I...More

Went into the market on three separate days - and was distinctly unimpressed with the stalls - some were the same each day, others differed. Been to better bigger & smaller markets elsewhere ...

Passing through Cambridge on a Saturday and it was nice to look at the stalls in the square. Nice flower stall.

Visit the olive guy on a Sunday - fab selection of the best olives and he's really friendly. The market is always worth a visit if you're in the city centre. Fab for new visitors to experience too.

Whilst we only strolled around waiting to meet a guide we loved this market - loads of very tasty looking food and some really interesting clothes on sale - some would say not special but really integrated well into Cambridge

Thank Paul S
