Had never been here before but thought it was fascinating. The range of stall was very good and the food ones all looked terrific. I’d like to return and just graze!

Fabulous market with a diverse food aisle, where you can eat (nearly) anything. Didn’t have a chance to visit all the stalls, but would have liked to!

This is absolutely my favourite place to go shopping in Bristol. There are so many quirky independent stalls to make purchases at. Lunchtime is absolutely the best as you are spoiled for choice with all the delicious food outlets. Most of them are veggie/vegan friendly...More
