We have returned to the market! It has been lovely to meet old and new customers face to face again as well as the other traders on the market. We will be in our usual spot every Monday and Tuesday, weather permitting, opposite Gap. Please come and say hello if you’re in Cambridge!


We have reverted to our £1 delivery charge for Cambridge city. All other delivery options remain the same. See Delivery Options page for details. Remember, Click and Collect from the market is free: just order on the website and come and pick up your books from us on Monday or Tuesday.

We have been very grateful for some very generous donations of books recently. Please contact us if you live in the Cambridge area and have any books you can donate or sell to us. We can give you 50p for each paperback and will come and collect.

Our books are all secondhand: most of them are only £2.50 each and all are carefully selected by us. Most of the books on the website now have a picture of the back cover as well so you can read or remind yourself of what the book is about.


Click and Collect continues to be a popular option. Simply follow the instructions below and avoid the (very small) delivery charge. Books can be collected on a Monday or Tuesday – please let us know if possible which day.

Should we be unable to attend the market on either of those days and you have put in an order, we will let you know and offer free delivery to compensate.

In order to use this service, please enter the address of the Market into the delivery address box: The addresss is: Market Square, Cambridge CB1 0SS
