everything about this "market" is terrible. Don't waste your effort coming here, there's nothing to buy, its depressing walking around and the stalls on the high street look messy and hide the actual shops/restaurants that you may be interested in.

Used to be a cool market in Watford, good seafood, meat, veg, groceries and some quirky stands. Now it’s absolutely awful and full of cheap rubbish. Yes the fish guy is there, but otherwise just not worth it anymore.

Watford used to have a good market with a wide variety of stalls, since it moved it is a joke. Containers used to house the market and it has closed stall by stall and how it can be called a market now is anyone's idea....More

Let me start by saying that I was a huge fan of the old Market in Charter Place (CP). Whilst I understand that with the development of CP the Market had to relocate, surely somewhere better could have been found than next to the flyover....More

Thoroughly depressing hovel, made with shipping containers, bereft of atmosphere, it beggars belief that someone actually thought this was a good idea.

Very disappointed, seems to be more places to get a snack rather than a bargain. Lots of empty stalls. Can't see any reason to go back

Hi Aliya, the closest car park to the market is the Citipark Gade which is on the other side of the parade to the market. You will find access via Rosslyn Road.
