Market Hall Shrewsbury
What do people like about the Market Hall in Shrewsbury?
Outstanding market. It would be worth going for a food shop alone, but coupled with the eating places and other stalls this place is a godsend. Recently tried cakes from the stall by the entrance which were superb. Veg and meat stalls are always excellent quality and if fish is your thing you won't be disappointed either. Cannot understand why people would go to the supermarkets in town rather than the market!!
I love this place - some really cool little shops! There's a gluten free place which is worth a look, the veg, meat and fish are all amazing. And then the cafes - Birds Next, House of Yum (which is amazing Thai place) and I've not tried the seafood place yet but heard great things! You will not regret going. We even get our hair cut here!!

We think that shrewsbury market hall is one of the best in the country. The market buffet cafe is the place to get good home cooking, well worth a visit. Also John Bliss meats is a very good place for fresh & cooked meats. We visit almost on a weekly basis. Keep up the good work.

Merry Christams to all at the Shrewsbury Indoor Market. Convieniently placed in town,it has a great variety of goods from clothes fish meat vegetables along with those other wonderful stalls which distract and add interest. I hope the knicker man is still there who also sells thermals. Wish I was there never more is there a need to layer yourself with thermal underwear so keep warm all you lovely people. John at Bliss butchers whose meat is second to none. Hope to see you all soon. Bronniex
best quality market I have ever come across ,a real gem pity it is not advertised better ,as it is very hard to find .THIS MARKET IS UPSTAIRS ,THERE ARE LIFTS!
It is all locally produced, fresh, better quality and cheaper than the supermarkets. I don't understand why anyone would want to buy fruit, vegetables, cheese, and especially meats from the supermarket when you have this resource on your doorstep.
Plenty of all the usual meats and the team at Corbetts are especially good at game. This is the kind of stall where they nothing seems too much trouble and they are more than happy to help and even offer advice on how best to cook your purchases. We try to use as many of the stalls as possible, but we have to admit, this is usually our first destination.
W D Butchers
If William hasn't got it, it's either not worth having, or he has already sold out, in which case he'll happily point you to one of the other butchers in the market hall. This friendly atmosphere is what makes the market such a great place to buy food. We have bought fantastic pork from William and his sausages are top quality.
