We’re big supporters of local businesses at Secret Bristol. It doesn’t get much more local than this. eat:Bedminster will once again transform East Street in Bedminster into a street market this September 30, after ten thousand people visited the inaugural market festival back last October. Over 60 local food and drink vendors will take over the entire street and showcase the best of Bedminster’s hospitality scene.
Between 10am and 4pm, the street will come alive with stalls offering farmer’s market favourites such as cider and cheese, award-winning bakeries and patisseries. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free food and drink options will also be made available. eat:Bedminster will also stretch onto Dean Street and there will be a free circus skills workshop on Mill Lane.
Visitors can also meet the faces behind their local suppliers, sample the best of Bedminster’s businesses, and discover local delights that previously might have slipped under your radar. To provide a cheery backdrop to browsing the stalls on offer, as pockets of entertainment will be dotted throughout the market. It will also be fully accessible for all to attend, as well as dog-friendly and free.
