Bull Ring markets is a vibrant outdoor set up with 140 stalls held six days a week. Visit the markets to stock up on anything from fresh fruit and veg to lingerie. The Rag Market is a ladies’ favourite with an unrivalled choice of fabrics and gown designs on offer.
On weekends Handmade Birmingham arts and crafts fair springs up alongside Bull Ring market. The weekly event is a great place to buy original souvenirs.
New Street Farmers’ Market is held every first and third Wednesday of the month. Here you can fill up on fresh goods from the local area for prices that won’t break the bank. The friendly stallholders happily hand out testers, and you can grab a light lunch at the market too.
