Double Market Weekend in June!

The first weekend of June the Christmas Steps is welcoming not only our regular first Saturday of the month Artisan Market on the 4th, but a farmers' market on the Friday the 3rd as well!

So you can stock up on edible goodies on the Friday and return for the Artisan Market on the Saturday!

The Christmas Steps Arts Quarter's only hotel - Hotel du Vin has organised the Friday farmers' market and it will take place from 11am to 3pm.  Stallholders include: Pieminister, Guilbert's Chocolates, the Steps own Bristol Cider Shop, Bristol Beer Factory and Herbert's Bakery.

May's Artisan Market managed to stay dry despite being sandwiched between two openings of the heavens.  Although this time, at least three stallholders wouldn't have minded, as we had a new indoor space to house them in!  It's just a temporary measure whilst there is an empty shop, but it did add some extra interest on a narrow slopy street where the options of having a 'rearrange' aren't that plentiful!

Not that we don't love out narrow, slopy street!  It is rather beautiful.  

Here are a few pics from the day and don't forget that you can download application forms for the market on this very blog.
