The Cambridge Market is an excellent spot to buy arts and crafts

Cambridge Market

Cambridge is a market city, and stalls have been trading at the historic market square in the city centre since the middle ages. From Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, stalls at the general market sell a wide range of goods including books, music, films, clothes, jewellery, fresh food, second-hand bikes, plants, mobile phones and accessories, and much more.

The market square also hosts a flourishing local food, arts and crafts market on Sundays (10 am to 4 pm), selling organic produce from local farmers and work from some of the region’s most talented artists, craftsmen, potters, sculptors and photographers.

Cambridge is a true shopping paradise with many independent shops

Find unique gifts at independent shops

We can be proud of the vast number of independent shops in Cambridge. Unfortunately, these lovely shops are often hard to find as they’re tucked away in alleyways and a bit further away from Kings Parade, close to Mill Road. Here are our favourite indie shops in Cambridge.

Enjoy the festive season and don’t forget to check out our What’s on Agenda, the Cambridge portal for what’s happening in Cambridge.
