Saint Nick’s market is at the top end of Broadmead and not even a 5 min walk from Cabot. It’s nice to go and mooch around and see some little stalls selling individual products that aren’t massed produced. There are some odd little shops and pubs in here which are worth a look as really takes you waya from the hustle and bustle of a busy city centre.
Where else would you go for lunch in Bristol?
Lots of choice, friendly stall holders, wonderful surrounds and usually really cheap food.
Always, always a pleasure.

i love the book shop, the smoothie bar, pieminister, having peppermint tea at the morroccan place, the olive and Kofka bar, the sweet shop, the record shop, spinach and chickpeas at the jamaican place…. so many to choose from! always bring my friends here when they are visiting
Hya used to be a stall holder but was shund out of town and city of Bristol by one of your longest traders. Always considered Bristol my home however all in the past but your profits are put aside for the traders futures. Could add so much more but staying within the rules.
I love wandering around market stalls and this market in Bristol town centre is one of my favourites as it gives you the feel that you could be anywhere in the world.
The range of stalls will keep you shopping here for hours as they sell everything from clothing, Jewellery, cards, crystals, crafts, books, shoe repair and some great little deli’s where you can pick up some very unique snack food or a simple coffee.
The market is a great place to find gifts for friends and family or a place where you can really treat yourself. If you love shopping then this is an ideal market to shop in.
The market does get quite busy at lunchtime as local workers pop in for a bite to eat etc.
This is a great undercover market with lots of hustle and bustle and is really popular with both locals and tourists. You will always find a vast array of many items such as books, bric a brac, wedding accessories, clothes, fabric and loads more. When I was shopping for my wedding day I bought some bits and pieces from here and found it much cheaper than the bridal shops, but the quality was the same. There are eateries here aswell, the list goes on, a great place to visit. This market is open 6 days a week and every Wednesday there is also a farmers market.
This is a great place to spend a few hours. You can wander around looking at all the stalls, there is something for everyone. You can find foods from all over the world, jewellery, materials, flowers, fruit and veg, and loads of nic-nac stalls.
You can sit outside with a coffee and people watch. It gets very busy lunch hour, as everyone from the nearby offices go there to get their lunch
I always used to visit st nics as a kid to check out all the different types of stalls from fake guns to t shirt printing. There is a really nice atmosphere, especially around christmas when they have the outdoor market with mulled wine and christmas cheer.
St Nick’s is great for a lunch stop, with the Pieminster, Sausage shop and olive stalls always popular, while the new cafe and deli Taste has added a more sophisticated sit-down aspect. There’s a wide variety of shops too, ranging from the useful (shoe repairs) to the out-there (crystals etc). Any arty types should head for Evangeline’s crafts which is a treasure trove of bits and bobs. There’s also a good fancy dress shop, and I can’t recommend the old sweet shop highly enough for its amazing retro selection!
Bristol City Centre can be a pretty vapid place but St Nick’s Market manages to add some much needed individuality. Fantastic food, bicycle accessories, jewellery and dog treats are some the varied finds you’ll get here. A good mix of the truly practical and downright out there keeps this market from being too full of itself. The diversity of food on offer is also a strength and you could dine out there for weeks without ever eating the same mean twice. A particular favourite is Royce Rolls and their fantastic falafel sandwich. Follow it up with a chocolately Australian Crunch bar and you will be happily stuffed. Not fancy or pretentious, just good.
Brilliant place! Had never been until a couple of weeks ago when we literally followed the hoardes of people walking up to it and stumbled upon it by accident. Its like stepping into an exotic market abroad with all the smells and the music and the hustle and bustle. There is a fab 70’s shop which sells everything from 70th clothes to furniture and telephones. We now have a 1970’s phone on our wall at home and its sooo cool! There are book stores second hand and new. In the indoor market are an array of little stalls selling anything from funny tee shirts to ethnic jewellery to knives and fork mobiles. A real treat and full of unusual bargains to boot.
I love walking around St.Nicholas Market even when I don’t buy anything. The market is very local and there are lots of inexpensive things in the stalls as well as more expensive deli-like stalls for food. You can find anything from sausages to secondhand books, local cheeses and pieminster pies.
One of those places you have to look for (it’s not next to the major shopping areas) but well worth doing. The market has all sorts of interesting items for sale: unique clothing and jewellery, alternative shops, toys, candles, cards, and a few delis and cafes.
On Wednesday, the outside area hosts a farmer’s market where you can purchase vegetables, fruit, cheese, meat, fish, honey, wines and meads, breads and desserts and more directly from the places that produce them.
On other days, there are stalls selling artwork, clothing and jewellery in the outside space.
It’s one of those places tourists might not see, but should.
