I had read that this was a really good market but turned out to be just another retail small shop market. There were a couple of unusual stores there but nothing worth making the trip for. London has better selections.
This is NOT COVENT GARDEN MARKET. The principal photo shown on Trip Adviser is not correct. The photo is of the original market (called just Covent Garden) which is now refurbished with craft stalls, cafes and boutiques.

Love this market .there were so many things to see.We happened to be there as there was an antique and crafts type show on.Honestly there was something for everyone one to see.
This whole area is a must.
Please be aware that some reviewers on Trip Advisor ( probably tourists) are confusing New Covent Garden Market with Covent Garden.
Make sure you are reading reviews for the correct one!

Visited here with my husband on a Saturday, there are so many little craft stalls with excellent items for sale, street entertainers, pubs, cafes. Could have spent all day here, will return when next in London and have more time.
Covent Garden Market is three markets located in a 19th century piazza, the market is surrounded by bars and restaurants. Street buskers surround this market and provide free entertainment, great place to visit. Jolly Chriss.
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated
by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
