  • The revamped Open Market is a welcome addition to the now up and coming London Road area. With interesting stalls and shops, this is a place where you can truly buy local. My personal favourite shop at the moment is Tea and Honey. It tends to be a lot quieter during the week, with just the main units being open rather than the market stalls. I have yet to visit on a Saturday when it is a lot busier.
  • Good and varied, food stalls, art, retro toys and a gourmet sausage roll place that will amaze you. I took my 7 year old and he bought some toys while I looked at old tools and ate sausage rolls, perfection!
  • Great variety of fresh produce. Check out the fruit and veg shops and the cheese shop where you can get quality stuff on the cheap. Looking for lunch? Little miss piggies has the best selection of gourmet sausage rolls (5 for £3, 10 for £5) The flying saucer in the corner offers some homemade treats where you can sit in comfortable seating while you watch the busy folks swim by whilst sipping on a tasty brew. Other cuisines on offer in there include japanese, greek and a good old fried breakfast! Something for everyone :) Also there's artsy clothing stores, antiques and crafts so it's well worth a visit especially on days when they have craft a fayre on!!
  • Great patisserie on site. Inexpensive but good and friendly Greek restaurant. Usual market produce plus plants, books, falafel, apothecary and specialist teas. Small friendly, buffet style Indian cafe also quite good.
  • The revamped Open Market has untapped potential. Sadly it seems to be staggering along without any coherent direction. There are several good permanent stalls (though some of the stalls don't open everyday) and cafés. The temporary stalls in the middle of the market come and go at random so you never know if a stall you want to visit will be there. This could be a fabulous resource to traders and customers and there were hopes that the recent changes to the market management would be positive, they haven't and the market seems to be limping along with little hope of becoming the thriving space it could be.
