Shame about this market not being as big as the old days but it’s still a traditional British market with some good stalls there

Perhaps it was because it was Wednesday but there weren’t a lot of stalls. A fishmonger, some tools, some clothing and some gadgets. Maybe it buzzes on Saturday but it was not worth the journey today.

Great selection of food stalls and a very Christmassy feel. Took a walk around whilst doing some Christmas shopping.

Went to the lamb a few years ago and it was rubbish but when we went on Friday we had a lovely meal at a great price and the staff were very friendly. I will be back there soon.

We love the market can pick up anything and everything. I love the bacon rolls and picked up some great treats for my dogs. I also bought bedding, a suitcase, and shoes. Great little market, great value.

There aren't many markets that offer a true essence of what real Essex is all about. I'm glad to say that Romford Market offers that in abundance. There's a good stall offering good fresh nuts, seeds and snack stuff - which is my highlight. The...More

The marketplace needs a total revamp. On market days it is pretty bleak and non market days even worse. Most items could be purchased in the lower end / priced shop chains. The surrounding shops around he marketplace need a refresh with some shut. It's...More
