  • The Market Hall, known locally as the indoor market, announces itself as Durham's Independent Department Store. Not a bad description. Stalls include fruit and veg, meat, shoes and clothes, hardware and soft furnishings, toys and cards, books and videos. There is a cafe with public toilets and even a store guide and security. The prices and range of goods serves local people from the surrounding villages well. It has a great atmosphere, with laughter frequently punctuating the friendly banter. But it's not the kind of place Durham's (mostly affluent) students would frequent. Saturday is a good day to come as the outdoor market attracts quite a crowd. The Market Square is a good place to sit and chat or watch passers-by and there are often special events.
  • Popular indoor market in the centre if Durham. Independent retailers selling a good variety of goods not normally found on a high street. Very friendly place with cafe upstairs.
  • This place is a nice. There is a tonne of stalls with clutter overflowing everywhere. Would be nice if they cleaned up the retail space a bit. A tonne of potential for this spot. Demographic mostly seniors from neighboring villages that have coffee and do little grocery shopping. Definitely worth checking out. You can find a everything you want if you are up for an adventure.
  • Cafeteria in Durham market is very good. Meals great. Toilets handy to the cafe although didn't notice any wheelchair users in this cafĂ© and toilets don't appear to have toileting facilities for wheelchair users.
  • Good old fashioned indoor market selling just about everything at great prices.. worth a visit
