Cardiff Market

St Mary Street Cardiff CF1 2AU

A large wrought iron-framed shed, with a miniature clock tower in the middle, Cardiff’s Victorian market has been in existence in some form or other since the 1700s. Originally the city’s main venue for the buying and selling of livestock, today it trades in all manner of goodies, from clothing, textiles and jewellery, to books, CDs and toys. Food, however, remains the market’s main rasion d’etre, and you’ll find a fine selection of fresh fruit and veg, meat, fish, dairy and baked products among the colourfully arranged stalls. Should you start to flag, grab a light bite or mug of tea from one of the snack joints on the balconied upper level.
