If you are in Birmingham a visit to St. Martens area of the city is a must, this market is not your normal run of the mill stalls, you name it and you can buy most things. The fresh fruit and veg areas are a must, with the multi cultural city the variety of stuff is amazing, if you don't know what things are or what to do with them the locals will tell you and more besides, if your into making your own clothes or soft furnishings this is the place to be. The shops surrounding this area are very reasonable, make their own goods and the display of colours is amazing. Nearby is the Chinese Quarter, the jewellery Quarter and many more areas of interest and a very short uphill walk you are in the main shopping area the new bullring and city centre, all transport links, easy parking, easy for w/chair uses, plenty of places to eat to suit all pockets and nationalities, with a wonderful warm friendly atmosphere from the locals.

I try to visit this market whenever I go to Birmingham. It seems to be the place to source those things you need but are unable to find elsewhere. A vast selection of fabrics, trims and accessories. All sorts of electrical, household and cosmetics. A proper bazaar and I adore it. I always finish my visit with a roast pork & stuffing sandwich at the corner caffe. Cheap, delicious worth ever penny.

This was our first visit and we loved the market ( and Birmingham) so much we are visiting again soon. The rag market has something for everyone, even my husband enjoyed it and believe me that's a result!

From vintage clothing to shoes, from jewellery to pickled chillies you name it, they sold it. The stall holders were all lovely and were happy to have a natter even if you didn't make a purchase. If you're visiting birmingham don't forget to visit this market.
