Come down to the market today, and you’re sure for a tasty surprise! Our award-winning market has an amazing selection of take-aways, delis, and delicious food stores. Why not build your own picnic to enjoy in the city centre? There are plenty of gorgeous green spaces to sit down for lunch, so you can enjoy a delicious meal in the great outdoors. Plus, shopping at the market is a great-way to support local independent businesses!
Remember to follow the one-way system in the Market, and bring a debit or credit card if possible, as many stalls prefer card payments at this time.
Pop by Bread Source for all sorts of baked goods, from sourdough to sandwiches! Their selection of pastries will keep everybody happy – we’re particularly partial to a cinnamon bun, but their pastel de natas and doughnuts are also wonderful. Why not pick up a loaf for later, so you can enjoy Breadsource the next day too.
Small sourdough £2.80, Cinnamon Bun £2.60. Other pastries range in price.
