Drove 45 mins to get there and it wasn't even open I checked on the website the night before and didn't say anything about it being shut. What a waste of time and petrol.

Unbelievable. All the signs are still on. Just went there and it's just an empty field. Wish I would of read these reviews earlier.

Drove out to finmere today and even though the road sign says 'Sunday market' there was nothing there when we turned in. Only a sign saying car boot on a Saturday! What a major frustration and disappointment.

Finmere market is still being advertised online as being open each Sunday from 8am to 2pm. As it's been over 10 years since my last visit and a lovely sunny day, my friend and I drove over 50 miles and followed the signs to "Sunday Market" only to find absolutely nothing there!! What a complete waste of a day and petrol. Not impressesd!!! If there's no market here any more (and judging by previous comments it's been slowly dwindling over the past few years) then it should say on the website. There wasn't even a notice on the gates to say it's no longer there, just advertisements for a weekly car boot sale on a Saturday and Bank Holiday Monday!

I wish that I had seen these reviews before going. Today I saw even less there than the previous comment. 1 fruit/veg stall, 1 clothes stall, 1 hardware stall and that was it - naturally accompanied by a burger van and an ice cream van and that was it - total!!! The once busy car park was virtually empty and anybody that I saw that drive in (like us) did not even get out of our cars before driving straight out again. It was so empty we actually drove our car between what was there rather than in the official parking area (did not see one marshall either). What market traders are left must surely be scratching their heads and must be thinking it is well past time to move on. It was the sunniest Sunday in weeks too - this was just plain embarrassing and must be only a matter of short while longer before it finally and sadly dies.

I have a website (this is not meant as a plug) and I made a page just to show the pics that i took today at Finmere so anybody reading this can actually see for themselves what I find myself.

Looked at pictures of Finmere Market on computer. Looked very busy, nice display of flowers and plants, many many stalls. Drove for 1.5 hours to get there to find 6 stalls and 4 cars visiting. Drove away at once. The web information is miss-representative (lying) and should be removed. The pictures we saw made us think it was like it was 25 to 30 years ago, with thousands of people every Sunday, it is NOT---- DON'T BOTHER TO GO.

We used to visit the Market years ago. We looked at a website yesterday and it said there were over 100 stalls, we travelled a great distance. What a waste for flaming time there was about 15 stalls nothing to what is showing on the main website. We are totally disgusted with the false advertising.

The much-advertised re-opening of this once thriving Sunday market was at the back end of March 2011. 100 plus stalls were promised. There were about 15. There was a good plant outlet stall --otherwise don't bother.

Do not waste your time going to this market it took me all of 5 minutes to get round the whole site. Hardly any stalls and the ones that are there sell utter rubbish. There was about 6 carboot stalls. What a shame this used to be brillant. Very dissapointing. :-(

Sadly not worth visiting. Very few stalls and the ones that are there sell low quality rubbish. Can't see it going on for much longer.
