On the north and east sides of Market Square you will find shops and college accommodations: to the west, there is Great St Mary's Church , and behind it, King's College Chapel , the Old Schools and the Senate House . The market place has been here for centuries, once taking up all the area between Great St. Mary's Church, St. Edward's Church , St. Andrew the Great and Holy Trinity churches. From Monday to Saturday the stall holders sell their wares: fresh produce, cut flowers, second-hand books, clothing, soap and souvenirs. On Sundays the square features an art and craft market and local farmers' stalls. For more details, call at +44 871 226 8006.
I used to go to the market every summer as a child when we were visiting family. I was lucky enough to take my 9 year old daughter there recently. She loved it! There's so many interesting items. Anything from fresh seafood to souvenirs. There's definately something for everyone. Shopping in the area is great too. Plus, you're right next to Kings College. Cambridge is a wonderful town!!!
I was stationed in the US Air Force about 30 miles from Cambridge during the early 1980's. Probably visited Cambridge hundreds of times, never tired of it. Last year we returned for a few days and it was like I never left (like 25 years had not past). Thats what I love about British towns, they don't change much.
The Market is worth a visit, in fact I was determined if I saw nothing else I would return to the market. The sounds, the smells, the bright colors, its just great to shop!
I loved shopping here, they had a lot of items from Cambridge University you could buy that were less expensive than in the stores. It was also a great atmosphere, the shop-keepers were friendly, and many were selling items they made themselves.
This reminded me of markets frequently seen in Spain and other Meditteranean countries. Browsing in the stalls is a nice contrast to the historical sights.
A favorite restaurant near the Market is the Eagle, famed for its World War II connections.
