Cardiff Market is an impressive Victorian structure offering a unique shopping experience and has been trading in one form or another since the 1700s. Located in the centre of the city, the market is well and truly the beating heart of Cardiff.

Under one great glass roof you will find a buzzing, lively market filled with local independent businesses and a wealth of products ranging from traditional Welsh cuisine to artisan coffee and street food; vintage clothing to second hand records; fruit and veg to a psychic medium.

It has occupied the same site for over 100 years and although you will no longer find livestock tethered and penned outside its doors, some of the old features remain to this day. Please explore our website for a tempting taste of the place, but remember, there is nothing quite like wandering the aisles and experiencing the sights and smells of Cardiff Market for yourself.



In Cardiff Market you’ll find a wide range of cuisine. If you want to try traditional Welsh recipes and locally sourced products, you’re in the right place.
