Birmingham’s markets are jam-packed with bargains, character, original and fresh produce and bumper choice. 


Bull Ring Markets

Birmingham's outdoor, indoor and rag  Bull Ring markets see over six million shoppers pop along every year for everything from bras and bananas to banter.

Six days a week, 140 stallholders are up with the lark to offer their great deals. The Indoor Market is famous for its selection of fresh meats, fish and produce, giving supermarkets a run for their money for choice, price and atmosphere. And whether you’re running up a ball gown or saying ‘curtains’ to ready-made home furnishings, nowhere beats the Rag Market.

Opening times:

  • Bull Ring Open Market - 9am to 5pm every Tuesday to Saturday
  • Bull Ring Indoor Market - 9am to 5.30pm every Monday to Saturday
  • Rag Market - Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9am - 5pm


New Street Farmers Market

Hand-made cheeses, mud-covered King Edward potatoes and organic everything, Birmingham’s Farmers’ Market has it all.

The first and third Wednesdays of every month sees the city centre transformed with a feast of gorgeous fayre, directly from those who grow or make it. The location can vary during winter.  


24 Carrots - The Farmers Market of the Jewellery Quarter

The 24 Carrots Farmers Market is located on the square in front of the Big Peg on Warstone Lane, with over 20 stalls taking part. Held on the third Saturday of every month.
