“Very Dissapointed”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

What a difference the year's have made, when the Cattle Market was here the Car Park was limited because of all the market stalls on it, on Market Day. Now its limited to just an indoor market like you would get in other towns. We went on a Wednesday as this used to be the day only to find the market was limited to the hall, not what we expected just a load of Bric a Bat, there are retail markets on other days Thursday and Saturdays.

Would not go again

“Good Old Traditional Market”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Our first visit to Abergavenny market even though we live only 24 miles away. Plenty of variety on stalls. Particularly liked the fresh cheeses, bread and cake stalls. Lots of nice quirky stalls too. Had not seen a memorial engraving stall at a market before!! Well worth a visit although it does get very crowded.

“Classic indoor market”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Tuesday is market day but Abergavenny Market is great anytime. At the moment there is a fantastic display of giant papier mache vegetables hanging from the (high) ceiling. The produce available is of a very high quality and includes continental foods such as olives and cheeses along with fresh vegetables and fruit. The antique jewellery and collectables stalls are great and there are plenty of craft items. Highly recommended.

“everything but the kitchen sink”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Well, not quite, but it's a large market with stalls selling just about everything. I was amazed to find that there are lots of stalls outside as well as inside; don't know how they all make a living but it's certainly vibrant and interesting.
