Baltic Market is Independent Liverpool’s first market venue and it is also one of the most popular ones. For many years, the people behind Independent Liverpool have been raising the profile of a number of the city’s indie restaurants, cafes, bars and shops, but now they have moved on to their own independent venture. Located in the city’s iconic Cairns Brewery building, Baltic Market is Liverpool’s first street food market and features some of the best local traders. Home of the halloumi fries, frozen gin slush, bubble waffles, gyros and wood-fired pizzas, it is a place for everyone and everything. Bring your loved ones and head here for weekly celebration of everything that makes Liverpool great..

For over 50 years, Scousers and those living further afield have considered a Saturday morning down at Greatie Market among their weekly ritual. Taking place every Saturday between 9am and 4pm, you’ll find anything from clothes and garden furniture to food and trinkets here. Parking in the area can be difficult so make sure you arrive early if you have your own vehicle. Throughout its time in Liverpool, the market has had to deal with some major changes, but despite it all Greatie has remained at the heart of the city.

3. Liverpool Christmas Market

Liverpool Christmas Market is what dreams are made of. Taking place outside St. George’s Hall, this is one of the most important markets in Liverpool’s calendar year. Opening mid-November each year, the market usually runs until around two or three days before Christmas Day. You can find mulled wine and other festive tipples at the Teepee bar, the Ski Lodge with its karaoke cable cars, and the Windmill Bar and Gin Tin, all geared to leave you fuzzy with festive feels. Foodies will love the festive treats on offer from the Bavarian Grill and Yorkshire Pudding Wrap stall, to sweet treats such as waffles and pancakes.
