Windmill Hill Market
Bristol Market has recently joined forces with Windmill Hill City Farm and Square Route Events to create Windmill Hill Market, an exciting new (non-virtual!) market in Bristol. Set within the City Farm, you can meet makers from our Makers Marketplace Directory in ‘real life’. You may just run into Géraldine too!
With a strong background in events, Géraldine has produced WOMAD festival shows around the globe, compiled publications for Alastair Sawday’s Special Places, tour managed numerous high-profile bands and run her own baby café business. For the past ten years, she has been working as a market manager for some of Bristol’s best-loved markets – including those at the Tobacco Factory and Temple Quay.
“I have loved markets for as long as I can remember. Growing up in France, market visits were a real pleasure for me, especially when holidaying in Provence. The hustle and bustle, the colours, the smells, each stall unique… Such a joyful atmosphere! Enjoying markets and supporting independent makers continued to be an important part of my life, but it was only when I became a market manager – almost by chance really – that I realised I wanted them to be the focus of my career too! The chance to work so closely with people who create and produce – people so full of passion and energy – is a privilege and something I truly relish.”
