  • 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.

  • Love Cardiff market . Get my bread and cakes from the same stall my mum did when I was a little girl and its by far the best. Love to get our veggies from the stall around the corner and love the little deli for my olives and honey/cinnamon nuts. So much there to see and buy .. the fish counter is amazing
  • Some may hate it: But the central market is a traditional open stall market-place. If visiting, be sure to check out Ashton's the fishmongers and the various traditional butchers. Try some real fast food and pop upstairs to see the old records or try a cafe. Great. Smelly and busy but that's how we like our shopping in Cardiff.
  • Ashton is my favourite shop in the market. Some tasty local breakfast upstairs too. Interesting variety of food sold at the market. If only there's a parking closer to the market that would be perfect.
  • Awesome heard about Clancy's and it had great vegan options. Along with great bulk spice and herb options. Which is extremely difficult to find a shop that sells bulk. But there is a lack of seating in general. A bench or two would be helpful for young and old to test their feet and to refuel with lovely food from the market. More general seating very much needed.
  • I felt very nostalgic coming here, like going to the Luton market hall in the 1980s. Aside from that, really good selection of vinyl, vintage clothes, old fashioned caffs like ones I grew up with and decent fruit and veg, bakers and what not.
