Reviewed 19 August 2013

Dirty, loads of stall closed, poor quality of stuff. Smelt, generally unappealing. Not even easy to find!

“not what it used to be!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Watford market used to be a busy place, with loads of stalls and people getting together at the cafe and looking around the variety of stalls..
these days it's an empty space, with one or two stalls. I feel for the stall holders as they must struggle in there. Thanks to the council they have put up the rent charges and have pretty much made the market dead. Well done Watford Council! you killed the market!
It could have loads of potential, but sadly it is lacking at the moment.

“Shop til u drop”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Has a large variety, many shops, some redundant, but great buys and anything you want! Only thing missing was a directory!
Also, it would be nice to have Sainsbury's inside the mall...

“Sadly being stripped of its glory by council charges”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

The market has seen better days although I always head there for fruit and veg and haberdashery. However there are lots of small businesses still running e.g. bikes and parts, hats, stamps and coins. And some lovely cafes serving good basic food at good basic prices. Watford needs to keeps this lovely market.

“Watford indoor Market”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

This market is a permanent feature so is quite unusual it is part of the Harlequin Shopping Precinct. You can get vegetable, furniture, electronics, photographic services, clothing in fact all of the items that you would expect from an outdoor market. Its no worse or better in my view than any of the other markets in the area.
