Wonderful place to spend a few hours. It won Market Hall of the Year 2019. Come to enjoy the vibrant culinary scene with Thai, Indian, Tapas, brunch or coffee at the fabulous Birds Nest cafe, pick up meat, fish as organic veg for your supper, or simply browse the independent stalls on the upper floor. You can buy wine, cheese, jewellery and round it all off with a craft beer or gin at the Gin bar.
