Great city centre market

Not entirely what we expected - a few food stalls, but also lots of clothing/jewelry/etc. Vibrant market, however, and we did enjoy browsing.

Pleasant, but small market just east of Kings College and Great St Mary's Church. We found it to have a limited selection of items in comparison to other markets we've been to throughout Europe. The market is open every day from 1000-1600.

took a stroll around Cambridge and decided to see what the market was like, though there was a few nice stalls - bread, meat, cheese. I found it lacking in something - previously reading the reviews I thought it would be better, with more local produce, and more selection. Found the area quite grubby, I know it's in the city...

Market Square is a very nice market place in Cambridge. It's new for me to see a market place in a developed country. It's a gathering of small small shops some in mobile vans, various foods and different kinds of products. Nice place to spend time. Hope you enjoy 😊

My daughters and I visited Market Square in the late afternoon of March 16, 2017. When we arrived, many of the vendors were packing up but there were enough open to appreciate the variety of goods offered. There were several food stalls offering a wide range of cuisines, the fried dumplings from a Thai stall were great! I recommend a... More

Some unique, quirky stuff and good food stalls. Pleasant location and if the weathers good you could probably spend an hour here.

Great place to grab lunch from the vendors or pick up some delicious fresh fruit. Different vendors as the week goes on, and lots of souvenir stalls if you need to grab something to remember the trip by.

Open seven days per week, but with many of the stalls' occupants altering from day to day. You can find hot and cold food to eat immediately; stalls selling vegetables both regular and esoteric or cut-flowers or fish; stalls selling clothes, shoes and hats both regular and wacky; stalls selling knickknacks of all types; stalls selling vinyl records, or second...
