Describe a street market in your city – IELTS Cue Card

Describe a street market in your city

You should say:

  • Where is it
  • What can you buy there
  • What is it famous for
  • How you feel about it

Sample Answer 1:

I would like to talk about a street market which is just a stone throw away from my home. I live in a big city, and there are plenty of street markets. However, the one which I often visit is Grand Bazar. It is a perfect place if you want to buy anything related to your wardrobe, kitchen, or any other household thing, then this place is for you.

It is famous for its quality products and items at affordable prices. Usually, we get low-quality products at low prices, but here that’s not the case. They do not compromise with quality. Therefore, I would not say they sell everything at low prices. Apart from that, when you go there, you would notice that people from all walks of life come here for shopping and delicious food. 

Yes, this market is also famous because of a particular Chinese restaurant. Old and young all love their food. You can literally feel the aroma of food nearby that restaurant, and no one has an issue with it. It is just amazing. 

I feel great about it, and I am glad that this market is pretty close to my home. Therefore, I often visit there with my family and friends to relax and enjoy the delightful food.

Sample Answer 2:

Well, the majority of the people prefer street shopping as the prices of items are very cheap compared to shopping malls or any exclusive showrooms. They not only provide a variety of products in different categories but also support the local economy. Here I would like to talk about my favourite street market, which is in my hometown.

I belong to a village, and this market is near to our house. Our town is very famous because of this market named “Nagar Market”. It is a big market, and everything is easy to find in this market.

I buy my home furnishings and grocery from this market. I also purchase my outfits from the same market. Because there are many branded shops are available here.

This market is known for selling goods at low prices. As a result of this rich and poor people come here for shopping. Many restaurants in this market are famous for their food quality.

I love to going there, whenever I am sad I go shopping there. Most of the time, me and my brother go for a walk there. I feel joyful and relaxed when I go to this market. I often tell people to visit this market if they come to our village and if you want to buy branded products at reasonable prices.

Thank you!
