Bristol’s 5th annual ‘Local Christmas Market’ launches in Broadmead on 4th December

Celebrating its 5th year, Bristol’s Local Christmas Market is back in Broadmead this week.
It opens for business at 10am on Thursday 4th December, with the official launch happening at 5pm on Friday 5th December hosted by Deputy Assistant Mayor Gus Hoyt.  

The theme of this years market is “Made in Bristol”, and as the name suggests, it is all about celebrating the fantastic small businesses and artists that our great city is home to.

Market organiser, Mike Cardwell, says “I’m genuinely overwhelmed by the incredible quality of handmade products we have on offer this year. Rather than buying mass produced gifts, come down to Broadmead – by M&S and The Galleries – and you can pick up some fabulous, truly unique products at great prices, all while supporting your fellow Bristolians at this festive time of year”

Running every day until the 22nd December, there are over 20 local artists and small businesses featured, selling a wide array of gifts including local cheeses & ciders, handmade organic childrens’ clothes & accessories, affordable art from some of Bristol’s finest artists, and lots of other gorgeous gifts – unique handmade jewellery, framed Bristol photos, recycled glassware, organic soya candles and lots more.  “Whether you’re after quirky stocking fillers or an extra special gift, the Local Christmas Market has the perfect gift for you”, says Mike.
