i have often been to clydach market and all though it is not the best in south wales it certainly deserves a chance, although i go there for the bootsale and sometimes you can grab a bargain there is no need for all these traders, you go there every week and nothing changes they need to have a day just for booters the first section is just full of traders selling rubbish week after week that nobody ever buys, and because of this on a wet day real booters have to be sent away because there is no room for them because of these traders, and then they have a cheek to charge you an entrance fee to look at the same stuff every week, i wouldn't mind paying if there was something different to look at wthat's why i mainly go to singleton bootsale where there are no traders and no entrance fee, and guaranteed every week is different, they have now started a friday bootsale and i don't know if anyone has been but if you have you will notice there may not be as much there but it certainley has a better feel, because there are no traders there, (for now).
as for the sunday market i have no interest in pound shop stuff being sold for a lot more expensive and cheap makes being sold for high street prices.
if you are looking for a real bargain and a different experience week after week don't bother going to clydach go somewhere else like singleton which is the best bootsale in south wales. if they want to attract mor people to this dying market/bootsale they need to let more booters in and stop reserving spots for the traders.

Not all bright lights and fast times.
No.
But a wonderful way to get to know the town. I mean really GET TO KNOW THE TOWN. People are more than willing to tell you stories, mention any name and it will begin. What do you want? a bargain - guaranteed! a memorable story - cross my heart you will get at least one. a good cup of tea and made to feel welcome - well you my friend have come to the right place. I got a bargain - world cup rugby jersey at a bloody good price. a story - of people once long connected to me. good food, someone to nurse my son while I haggled and the best insider information for what to see in Wales and what to recognise as a waste of my time.

wonderful people wonderful time
