If you're like me and love browsing markets, you'll definitely love this one :) There's a little bit of everything, from clothes and shoes to foods and houseware. There are plenty cheap local food products to buy, which I found especially interesting :)

The rag market is great, stall holders friendly, large selection of goods. I use it for fabric and haberdashery, loads to choose from and bargain prices. Always worth a visit if you are in Brum.

Alot of quality items. Having come from bristol up to Birmingham on a day trip, I really enjoyed seeing a market with absolutely everything from traditional cafes to clothes, house wares, gifts and party decorations. Highly recommend this market for a few hrs walk around.
