  • Always worth a browse when your in cardiff! Can grab a bargain at the butchers or fish monger! I miss the old days when you go also buy a puppy or a kitten!  more »
  • A recommended visit, to see national products at good prices. It is the best market I've ever been, nor the larger, but interesting. You can eat something there, or you can buy takeaway. Good cakes at a good price, as well as typical cookies there. They have fish, not very big and I think that carnage. I don't remember it.

  • Is not so big and is probably most local acting here. Meat and vegetables stalls are a part and the rest is a mixed bag. Is free toilets on site. If you are in areas it is worth seeing but is not something you should go for.

  • Great place to come for a bit of authenticity. There's a bit of everything here from fresh meats to books, gentlemen dress to birthday cards. Fresh rolls made in front of you . There is an upstairs but I've never been. I don't thi k there's a lift so wheelchair access upstairs is not possible. Downstairs though is completely flat. The fish monger is legendary and they have Everything.
  • I've been coming to the market for years! I love the atmosphere and as well as having the old stalls there are always new ones offering different things. The one I liked on my latest visit was a tea stall selling loose tea! And, then there is the fish market!! Excellent selection and the fish is always restaurant quality. So, there you have it a one stop shop for your fruit, veg, meat, fish, bread and about anything else that you need!! Centrally located!!
  • Lots of choice here, fresh fruit and veg, fish and cakes. Don't forget to go upstairs though, as you will miss out on some amazing stalls if you do. Highlights for me are Kelly's vinyl and cd stall, an excellent bacon and egg lunch and a browse through the second hand book stall.
  • Great little market. Some unusual shops as well as veg, meat and fresh fish. It used to be a woman's prison, so has a lot of historical interest.
  • I and my partner loved waking around the cardiff central market, and explore the different food stands. In particular, we found a cheese stall, and bought a selection of welsh cheese that were delicious!
