The buying experience:

Anyone can visit the market to purchase products from the traders, here are some helpful tips on how to get the best out of your visit.

  • Have a good look around the trading halls to see what's available.
  • Chat to the traders, ask them questions and get a feel for the quality of the goods and compare prices.
  • Costs - Wholesale Markets don't advertise prices like high street shops. Ask about prices and discounts for large orders and don't be afraid to haggle, it's half the fun! 
  • Place your order and pay for the goods.
  • Payment - all the stalls take cash, some take credit cards and regular trade customers can ask about credit accounts.
  • The porters will then put together you order and either load your goods onto your vehicle for you or you can arrange to have you goods delivered.
