Bristol markets has a wonderfully independent spirit and our markets reflect that. We have a huge range of Bristol places to visit to eat plus a host of market and food stalls with locally sourced products.
Finzels Reach Market
Right on the doorstep of our Finzels Reach serviced apartments you will find this new weekly street food market. It takes place every Friday from 12pm to 2pm, so no need to worry about what to get for lunch as you will be spoiled for choice!
Just pop out, stroll around, enjoy the smells of the homemade pies, wood fired pizzas and other worldwide dishes, and pick up whatever you fancy in Bristol markets!
St Nicholas Market
If you are looking for something a bit different and unique in Bristol places to visit, then head to St Nicholas Market in the heart of the old city. St Nicks Market, as it is sometimes called, has been around since 1743 and has a range of stalls selling everything you can imagine.
The indoor market is open Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 5pm (except Bank Holidays).
Every Wednesday from 9.30 to 2.30pm, there is an award winning Bristol Farmers’ and Producers’ Market in Corn Street and Wine Street. This is a great place to shop for locally sourced foods such as pies, cheese and pastries and cakes!
If you are lucky enough to be visiting Bristol on a Tuesday or Friday between 11am and 2.30pm, make sure you come hungry as those are the days of our Street Food Market. Be tempted by all manner of foodie experiences. Indian, Thai, Japanese, British and regular guest stalls means there is always something for everyone and there is always plenty of seating so you can sit and savour your food.
Friday and Saturday 9am to 5pm head to Corn Street to find our Nails Market where you will find a stunning range of handicraft stalls. Browse the handmade ceramics, glassware, jewellery, art and retro clothing and hand knits for that special something to remind you of your visit.
The Harbourside Market
The Harbourside Market has been running since 2010, when it was set up as part of the regeneration of Bristol’s unique harbourside. This weekend market runs every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm and on Thursdays from 12pm to 3pm. It really has established itself as part of Bristol life and is worth seeing as Bristol places to visit. It is a great place to hang out and chill, browse the stalls, relax and have a drink or a meal, and of course it is still proudly independent. One not to be missed from the Bristol shopping options!
Address: The Harbourside Market, 1 Canon’s Road, Bristol BS1 5UH
