I thought I would try this market out as it is listed as being open on Sundays and I wanted to try the Mexican food.

Today, I wandered down to the Elephant and it was closed !!!

When is it open?

The signs around the shopping centre still say general market Monday-Saturday, food market Sunday.

I don't think the Sunday food market is operating anymore, not seen it for ages.

They left because they weren't getting enough custom. Some of us did buy stuff there1

Chavender - are you talking about the short-lived Saturday farmers' market outside the LCC? That was a different thing altogether to the Sunday market outside the shopping centre.

Both really have gone, though there may be one food stall left outside the shopping centre.

Thanks for all your replies

I phoned up the market organisers and they said it was closed due to the poor weather earlier this year and a lack of stalls but they may re-open with the better weather

I asked them to update the website and the signage.
