The central market is one of Cardiff’s most iconic landmark buildings. Grade II*-listed, it was opened in May 1891 and is located on the site of a former farmers’ market and also Cardiff jail, where the Merthyr Uprising martyr Dic Penderyn was hanged in 1831.
Last year, I wrote a guide to shopping sustainably at the market (to go with the video below) which you can read here. A few years before that, I wrote about the market stalls worth visiting at lunchtime, for Wales Online, though many newcomers have joined the trader line-up since this was published!
