We had a browse here with lunch. We stopped at a vegetarian spice shop for chili cheese chimichanga and a Caribbean pastie. We also had a roast pork sub. All very nice indeed. Worth a visit for a cheap lunch.

Cardiff Market doesn't make any attempt to promote itself, and looks very unappealing from the outside. However, it's worth a visit if you are looking to try some interesting foods in Cardiff. There is a good fishmongers, several greengrocer stalls, and it's a good place...More
