Cambridge is a market town and the market square has been the place for numerous local tradesmen since the Middle Ages.
You can find stalls with various products on offer from local produce to health foods stalls.
Every Tuesday a fresh seafood stall operates and you can buy a selection of fish, scallops and other delights. Just behind the seafood stall is a Thai Food stand selling many thai favourite meals to eat there or take away.
Many stalls offer local crafts, clothing, music, jewellery and various accessories. Students may find the bike shop useful as it sells second hand bikes and can offer repairs for those that are broken.
