Cambridge City Council


Traders have been running stalls at the historic market square in the city centre since the middle ages. It is open for trading from 10am to 4pm every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

You can buy fresh food and ingredients from a wide range of cuisines, as well as art, plants, clothes, jewellery, books, music and much more. Some traders are able to offer services such as bike and watch repair.

On Trinity Street in All Saints Garden, there is an arts and crafts market every Saturday where everything is handmade. Traders sell jewellery, pottery and sculpture, photography, paintings and prints and clothing.

Many traders also sell online – follow us on social media (links below) for links to their accounts and websites.
