Cardiff Central Market
Approaching its 130th birthday, Cardiff's Victorian built indoor market has hosted innumerable traders over its illustrious existence. With 265 stalls available to trade from, some have gone the distance and others have gone for good. Here are a few marketeers and their stalls only a few days before Central Market was closed for the first time ever, including 2 world wars, for the duration of the two Covid 19 pandemic UK lockdowns . As the world emerges from the worst effects of the pandemic, these small family run businesses have shown great resilience and determination to keep trading until the customers return and they can build back the market to its former glory.
