Who we are
The main squeeze, big cheese, creator and curator extraordinaire is Géraldine.
You may recognise her lovely face or the dulcet tones of her formidable French accent if you’ve ever visited the Tobacco Factory Market, where Géraldine has worked as the market manager, carefully cultivating and watching it bloom for the last six years. Not content with one market Géraldine can also be found at Temple Quay street food market every Thursday!
As a self confessed market addict the idea for BM online had always been rattling around in the background… then along came lockdown!
Recognising the need to fill a gap and throw a lifeline to her lovely trader crew Géraldine began to concoct her plan and put her market wheels in action and BOOM Bristol Market’s first online event was born on 5 May 2020 and the directory of independent makers in November 2020.
What else is there to say about Géraldine, she’s multilingual, a brilliant mum , wife and friend, has run her own successful business whilst juggling a newborn (nuts!) and worked for some of the biggest names in the business.
She loves what she does and cares about those she does it with.
