Some great stalls offering a wide array of goods, organic toiletries, marshmallows, clothing, jewellery, garden ornaments etc and some unusual things in between. I guess the market is a regular weekend event? busy as you would expect but stall holders that I spoke to seemed very chatty and time to show their gifts/goods. Very nice market indeed, close by the... More

They say you cannot buy happiness, but you can buy local and guess that is kind of the same thing. Stratford-upon-Avon market has so much to offer. The bonus is when the sun is out and you can pretend you are on an exotic holiday. Highly recommended. Beware you need to get there early or you will not find anywhere... More

We stumbled upon this on Sunday morning and enjoyed a pleasant stroll through. There is a surprising amount of variety and choice on the stalls, lots of lovely fudge and marshmallows in interesting and different flavours caught our eye!! But there's also a range of crafts, clothing, footwear, food etc. Worth a visit if you're in Stratford on a Sunday.

Visited here last Sunday and enjoyed strolling amongst the different stalls selling all kinds of weird and wonderful items. There was also some great food stalls which were selling some lovely smelling foods. Also a stall at the end showing off live owls which was nice to see. Good way to spend an hour or so.

Some funky, original offerings in this canalside setting. More of a trip for tourists rather than locals seeking traditional farmers' fayre. However, a splendid place to pick up some different souvenirs.

Easily found down by the canal and distinctive with the bright awnings. Wide variety of original items to buy and a range of prices. Managed to buy four different presents which I had been seeking inspiration for. Even on a drizzly Sunday morning it was worth the effort.

When the suns out and the crowds of tourists are around there is a real buzz about Waterside Craft Market each Sunday - we revisited on a cold and overcast day and we're delighted to see the same traders happily serving lots of locals as well as the last of the holiday trade. The market is open from Easter to... More

Not really into markets, but came across this open air market down by the river, there was a good selection of stalls selling good local products at reasonable prices. Worth looking at when in Stratford, I believe its only open on Sundays.

We had a great time looking round the large range of stalls and bought a couple of items. The stall holders are friendly and welcoming. There was also a stall for a charity for birds of prey when I visited and was able to stroke a tawny owl with a small donation which was a lovely experience. Great range of... More
