This was a pleasant market to browse around. There are lots of food places that smell amazing, although we didn't try any. There are also lots of stalls to look around, wooden carvings, knitted goods, spiritual stones, a toy stall etc.

Great market with all sorts of stalls. We found the most amazing little sweet shop here and spent out 'pocket money' on some lovely old fashioned sweets. The smells from the different food stalls were very enticing. Lots of stalls and something for everyone.

An eclectic mix of all kinds of interesting stalls and street food vendors. A really enjoyable walk around with some great smells on the way! Nice to see a bustling market still thriving.

Seemed to be three disparate sections of the market, but the hodgepodge way to held together was charming. We wer a bit disappointed, as we were told this was Bristol's Christmas market, but it was nothing like, say, Lincoln or Nottingham. It looked like a...More

I saw several small(ish) dogs on leads when I was there - the alleyways can be a bit narrow

The clothing stalls are the more unusual items - certainly not your run of the mill high street stuff. Don' remember seeing any shoe stalls, but there might very well be.
