Swansea Indoor Market
A one-stop shop for local and traditional products.
Swansea Market is the largest indoor market in Wales and one of the largest and most famous in the UK, maintaining a century old tradition of market trading in the heart of the city. The current market hall, with its great glass roof spanning 192 foot, was built in 1961 following the destruction of the original building in the Swansea Blitz.
The market offers a wide variety of fresh, local produce including Gower fruit and vegetables, cockles and laverbread, and Welsh cakes straight off the griddle. There are specialist butchers sourcing their produce from their own farms or farms within the area, and offering homemade speciality sausages and meat joints prepared in time-honoured Welsh fashion. As might be expected in Swansea Bay, there’s never a shortage of fresh fish.
The market is open Monday to Saturday 8am–5.30pm and is easily accessible from nearby public car parks and public transport. With all stalls on ground level, it is easy to get around and entrances accessible for all. The nearest public toilets are in the adjacent bus station and Quadrant shopping centre.
School and community groups planning to visit the market should contact the Market Manager who may be able to meet the group and arrange an introductory talk.
