What time does this pack up on a Saturday?

4pm on a Saturday, although a lot of stalls start winding down around 3pm (if they've had a good day) and some stay open a little after 4pm (if they haven't).

but going along at around 3:30-4pm is good for cheap things, and most stalls are still reasonably well stocked

...if you press it, they will come.

Really, do they start cutting prices towards the end in order to shift perishable stock? That would be useful information.

Just keep your ears open for the cry of " 'arf price fish " at the end of the trading day - subject to stock levels, of course.

and (nice, but expensive at full price) bread too. Plus Mrs I always gets a better deal from everyone than I do. Even before I've been to the cider stall.

I find that some fruit/veg stalls start offers even earlier than 3pm. If you keep an eye out you can definitely get some bargains. If you're into your booze, there's a good alcohol store with a wide variety of beers and ales from around the world.
If you've never been to the market, i recommend your first visit as a scouting exercise, as it's a lot to take in, and it can get quite crowded. If you go around lunchtime, you will inevitably succumb to the gorgeous smells and aromas of all those stalls serving up meat dishes. Yum.
