Great resource for finding Independent makers

'As we are an independent shop based in Bristol, we are always looking for new artists who make certain products. I would definitely recommend using the Bristol Market website as a helpful resource into finding the right artists for our store'

I get regular orders

'As a new business, I can not recommend being on the Bristol Market Directory strongly enough. I'm based in Scotland and only sell online, and I get regular orders throughout the year from Bristol and surrounding areas, which I can definitely attribute to being seen on this directory. It's worth the (very reasonable) price!

Bristol Market has become a community.

Bristol Market has become a community. We really feel how much Geraldine loves the traders she works with, she walks the walk, supports them and always has time for questions, to give advice and receive feedback. In uncertain times Bristol Markets is a light that shines. Our customer reach has expanded afar, and we have learnt how to implement a consistent online strategy to carry us forward.
