About the Market

Christmas Markets

Sundays 4, 11 & 18 December, 10am - 3pm

Our lovely Christmas markets get under way next Sunday 4 December. We’ll have over 50 stalls offering a wealth of choice for original gifts - or give a Sunday Market Voucher and let them have fun choosing something for themselves (available from the 'Fruit & Veg' stall & the Cafe Bar). There will be mulled cider, roasted chestnuts and a fire pit to keep you warm and festive singing from local choirs. All the December markets will be extending out into Raleigh Road.

Every Sunday 10am - 2.30pm

A community market for Bristol

Visit our thriving community market, with around 40 food and craft stalls, featuring a carefully selected range of produce, prepared, harvested, cooked, baked, designed and made in the local area. We have a strong emphasis on ethical, eco-friendly, fair trade, organic and local products, and believe our market is the ideal setting for you to meet the producers themselves, chat with them and ask questions.

Not only do we hope that our market promotes local shopping, we also think it's a great place to meet up, hang out with friends and family, plan an outing and mix with the local community. We've weekly kids activities (11.30am - 2pm) too.

To charge your batteries, the Cafe Bar opens from 10am for brunch, tapas, coffee and cake, as well as an excellent selection of local beers.

Every 3rd Sunday of each month

Extended market, plus Retroville

Each month we extend the market into Raleigh Road, providing you with even more top quality stalls and local traders to meet and purchase from.

Taking place alongside this extended market, we host Retroville - our very own vintage & retro market - with stalls selling clothing, jewellery, homeware, records, furniture and the unexpected.

Gift Vouchers

Shopper Bag

Sunday Market gift vouchers can be purchased from our Cafe Bar. Valid at all of our market stalls, this is a great gift for anyone who loves locally produced food and crafts.

Available in £5 vouchers, they can also be used at Tobacco Factory Cafe Bar and Grain Barge.
Made from unbleached, natural, thick, cotton canvas, with long natural-webbing shoulder handles, this is the ideal shopper bag.

Strong and re-usable you can purchase your very own eco-friendly bag from our Cafe Bar for £3.50.

Meet Our Traders

Markets are a feature of almost every country in the world - and they are pretty much universally loved.  For a market to be successful, several vital characteristics are required:  the quality of the produce, the location and the atmosphere.  Key to the last one is the personality of the traders and the customer experience of buying direct from the producers and makers.

We take great care in the selection of traders at our market. It’s very important to us that they are passionate about their products and that they want to share that passion with their customers.

We want to share some background on our wonderful traders - where they come from and what they’re all about.

We hope that you enjoy finding out more about them. And feel free to have a chat with them at the market - one of the other great aspects of shopping at markets!
