Markets

You can do better than a limp sandwich and a bag of crisps! Forget your pack up and upgrade your fill up at one of our lovely markets – it’s no wonder they’re so popular

Narrow Quay

This market and exhibition area is right in the thick of the action and boasts a variety of stalls lined up opposite the busy bars and restaurants. The Cascade Steps stage is a stone’s throw away so you can enjoy the sounds of the live performers while you saunter along the water’s edge.

Queen Square

A must-visit destination for many Bristol Harbour Festival visitors, Queen Square’s continental market never fails to impress with its fantastic line-up of stalls from across France, Italy, Spain and Germany. Find olives, fresh bread, cheese and fresh fruit, tartiflette, paella and crêpes alongside traditional gifts and crafts, including gorgeous handmade soaps and ceramics.

Merchants Quay

Independent traders from across Bristol and the South West unite in this bustling new addition to the market line-up . Throughout the weekend traders will be selling wooden crafts, glassworks, art, jewellery, clothing, accessories and food. Also features a rather wonderful vintage market. Opens from Friday afternoon.
