So much in one place and consistantly a good example of an English market with a lot to offer. Good all year round to grab gear, a bit a gift or just generally mill around.

This place does not get any better and is in need of a major revamp. The selection of stalls is poor, food items are overpriced and food hygiene is doubtful. The cobbles are uneven, slippery and wet and the rubbish bins are a filthy eyesore. In addition the delivery vans were still unloading after 10am and it is a pedestrianised... More

The market had some food and some standard stands that we see in most every market in Britain. Boring. Could have been exciting if local crafts and unique stalls were enforced instead of the commercial standard.

I have been at this market in all kinds of weather. Rain, cold, snow, summer. There is always something good to eat. Pick an ethnic food. There is probably a stand here. I complimented a young Indian vendor on my wonderful lunch, from his booth. He replied his Mom made everything that morning. Each time I go there, I try... More

We visited the market on both Thursday and Friday and found it to be a great example of a market. There was interesting cheese's, fish and bread, in addition there were a number of street food staffs, not a burger in sight!! The noodle bar in particular had a long queue.
