Modern with a few reasonable cafes. Although it wasn't open, the Gin Bar downstairs looked good. A short walk from the Bullring.

Beautiful modernist art deco building, excellent produce, friendly atmosphere, for your weekly shop or just to browse as a tourist, how food shopping should be. Try and get there Saturday mornings when it's particularly buzzing!

The building is old and very interesting architecture. Worth seeing it. Inside there are a lot of stalls with different food/seafood, meet, everything! The square around the building is full of small restaurants for tapas or other snacks.

Pop by the market for a great range of food and drink... if you've got no need to do any 'grocery' shopping treat yourself to some tapas instead. The building itself is worth a look if architecture is more your thing than the culinary arts!

Not a place to spend a lot of time, just a quick visit will do. Beautiful building and excellent facilities.

The Market hall is huge, impressive, a reminder of the now defunct "Les Halles" in Paris. I don't think there is any food on earth you cannot find here. Take you camera, the vendors love to show of their market stands.
