If you haven't been to Birmingham's Rag Market and Food Market - you haven't lived. I travel to many towns and experience the stalls of many markets but when I come home I think to myself what a wonderful market Birmingham has. There is something for everyone and the stallholders are so friendly and obliging. I obtain many many bargains every time I go. My trolley is always full and I always look forward to visiting again and again. The manager's keep a strict look on things and if you have any complaints they are always willing to sort it out - they stand no nonsense and have strict rules for everyone. Someone is always on duty to see that the toilets are kept clean. a must in such a busy market. Food wagons are marvellous and give such good value as well as seating. Can't praise them all enough, they are fantastic working such long hours and serving the public the way they do.

This place is good for bargain hunters. Be careful if you do not bargain or do not know the real value of the item what you are buying you will end up paying double or triple the price of it. Multi ethnic.

Living in Birmingham we often visit the rag market in order to find a bargain and this is one of our first stops when we want to buy something that may be obtained from a market setting. It is great to wander around and is right next door to the food markets. Definately worth a wander even if you don't want to buy anything
