  • We were here on a Sunday afternoon and the market was in full swing, with some decent stalls selling above averages food and goods. A nice place to spend half an hour or so.  more »
  • We went with my partner on a day's stroll through Cambridge and it turned out to be a perfect place to stop and eat before continuing the tour of the city. I especially recommend the stand of Pinchito! Excellent Spanish, and food of the best tortillas and croquettes I have ever tasted in my life. I recommend it, no doubt! The owner speaks several languages.

  • A really interesting place to visit. Many different types of cuisine and shops. Some of them are a little pricy, but the overall market is a good experience. It is also in the main square, so it's very well located.
  • Vibrant market with varied & unusual stalls, not the usual tat. Range of ethnic food stall amazing. At least 3 offering gluten free options
  • Great to wander round. Also go on Sundays as different stall often with great local food and produce
  • Big variety of independent stalls. Good mix of food, hand made items and unusual gifts.
  • Busy but interesting. Like all good markets its full of hustle and bustle. Good mix of food and boutique/vintage stalls. Good if you want something a bit unusual as a present or you want something interesting to eat without finding a sit down restaurant.
