Visit here regularly on Saturdays. Well worth it. Lots of interesting stalls including various types of food and brilliant freshly cooked hotdogs. A must do if in the City.

fantastic place especially on market days, the town crier is a great asset, well situated for the cathedral, bishops palace, town hall, epitomizes all that is great about Englands smallest city.

Plenty of stalls and lots of different products available. Each to access and walk around, parking can be a challenge, unless you know of a special place.

Every Wednesday and Saturday from 9:00am to 4:00pm although some fresh food stalls start closing about 1:00pm. Parking is at a premium on market days.
