We absolutely love the quality of the food in this food stall. Beautiful tabbouleh, falafels and more. We get take away every time we come to the market and the food is consistently good and the stall holders are lovely people. Great value for money as well. Sally H.

I love the Dandy Market for my weekly fresh food shopping. I also like to browse amongst the stalls. And the jam donuts are to die for.

The market was very good but was a lot smaller than what I thought but other than that it was multicultural, food was amazing and loved looking at all the different things they had to offer! Would definitely go back there again soon.
