I liked it, but there were only 2 of the shops open, cafe isn't too bad, that was busy, only 6 people in there. The Pannier Market wasn't really very interesting, better during the tourist period. They have a Craft Market twice a month not sure how busy that gets.

Lots of different small shops downstairs with unusual gifts and crafts. On a Tuesday not a lot of sellers standing upstairs but some nice artwork from a local artist and some brilliant hand made cards. Well worth a visit.

Really great little place with some interesting stores. Particularly enjoyed looking at the art galleries (Harry Juniper and others) and wood carving place (John Butcher) with some very humorous and touching pieces of work. Some real characters throughout the market who were a real pleasure to meet and talk to.

Great place, good small shops but early Saturday afternoon there were no traders in the upper floor apart from a very good cafe. Is there a good day to visit where there is more on offer ??

So disappointing. We were expecting stalls of craft cheeses and artisan breads but were met with a few unhappy looking tables carrying overpriced tourist bric-a-brac. We left after 10 minutes and didn't even buy a cup of tea from the cafe area which was by far the best stall in the hall.
