  • Beautiful and interesting market under cover of huge glass domed roof, they cater to all covering a very wide range of services from personal tailor adjustable clothing stall, health products, all fresh locally grown food, lots of places to eat, one or two make fantastic meals, very good prices. A definite place of interest, try our local cockles and muscles with lava bread Welsh speciality. I must also add this is the largest indoor market in the UK.
  • Good for fruits and vegetables, proper fishmongers and decent butchers you can find typical Welsh food as cockles, lava bread, Welsh cakes... Also lots of old craftsmen (leather repair, stitching...) and wholesalers. A few cafes. Ideally located in the heart of Swansea. If you need groceries for a quality meal go there with no hesitation.
  • Brilliant indoor market with several entrances. It so great to see small businesses doing well. The bakeries, butches and greengrocers are especially worth a visit. Best Welsh cakes in Wales!
  • Classic indoor market with everything from butchers to electrics to pre-prepared food - especially Swansea's famous cockles and lava bread (a must with some pepper and vinegar). Gold for money, clothes, mobile phone repair - basically you can find most things in the market, although, it's not quite as busy as it was back in the '80s and '90s. There's a BBC Wales documentary on it if you want to see "behind the scenes", which, is no doubt on the Web. Stores are generally cheap but not all are. Nice for a walk around.
  • A good place to buy fresh produce from local business owners. Stall holders always happy to answer questions and provide advice when asked about the products they sell.
