For the last 20 years we have opened at 9a.m. on Saturdays, as until then the wholesale market is in progress. It is well advertised as this time.
Glad you came and enjoyed the very busy boot sale, hope to see you again soon.
Bessemer Road, Cardiff, Wales CF11 8BB
Bessemer road boot sale is a great place to buy and sell almost anything you want all year round. The rates are reasonable, the hours plenty and lots of tea,/burger vans to keep you going. Its a great morning out both Saturday and Sunday and beats staying in doing housework any day! I always have a good laugh at Bessemer and have got to know many of the friendly stall holders.
Just wondered who I needed to contact to set up a stall - an email or contact no as am relocating and trying to get rid of many useful things we have at a small price,
Which day is it a car boot and which day is the market it sounds like a great day
hello can anyone tell me what time you must get there to set up? also there tables there with shelter as i am looking to go end of months and we know what uk weather is like!!!

I've done a bootsale under the cover at the side of the site but you don't sell very much. People tend to stick to the middle of the site which unfortunately is not covered. Next time I'd definitely avoid the sheltered area and take a chance with the weather.
If you need it, go out and get it.
Credit crunch mayhem is left behind when you visit Bessemer rd bootsale.
I am a stallholder,and since ive been trading at this market, I have picked up some wonderful bargains,met some really great people, and look forward to every saturday and sunday.
Oh, and i’d better not leave out the organiser of this brilliant event,
So come and support this bootsale.
From used furniture,sofa’s, beds,tables,etc.. to motorbikes, prams,dvd’s.you will be surprised what items you can pick up at bargain prices.
Even chicken curry for lunch from Dave…mmm lovely jubbly.

Bessemer Road is really good. It runs on a Saturday and Sunday and also bank holiday Monday. There is always a good selection of stalls to have a good look through and a number of burger vans for when you get hungry! The easiest place to park is on the road and then wander down to the fruit market site. If you are a stall holder, then you queue up outside until the gates are opened to let you in.
Parking is fine, stall selection is amazing and if you love markets then this is the place to go all year round every Saturday and Sunday.
There is a car boot on the one day and a market on the other - as far as i remember, the car boot is on the saturday! It would be great if other qypers could help out with details too?
There’s plenty of things t obrowse on boths days so well worth a visit if you like markets - on either day.
A rumagers dream, you can get anything from an old nut cracker to a moth eaten teddy bear.(not that the moth would be to everyones taste) A veritable haven for the bargain hunter. Just loose yourself amongst the stalls. Bet you can’t resist buying something. For booking a pitch ring 07967123016 guy’s name is Andy. Oh if you get taken short while your there there are toilets. There are also refreshments for sale .

What days/times is it? Would like to combine with a visit to The Pumping House….Oops, I’ve found it now!
Fantastic - must tell my friend Gill from North Wales. She loves (and does) car boot sales. Recently, she visited the one in Chirk…...
I would love to go here - with Gill.
