What’s on at Windmill Hill Market?

Stalls

The market stalls feature fabulous independent brands, vintage, and food & drink produce.

Our talented artist makers, traders and producers offer an inspiring shopping experience. Look no further for original gifts as well as ethical products to live well with.

Stalls typically include jewellery; clothing; homewares; cards & prints; bath, beauty & wellness; and gourmet food products.

Don’t miss the Slow Fashion Wardrobe, where traders sell vintage and upcycled clothes.

You can also meet makers from Bristol Market’s online Makers Marketplace in ‘real life’.

Traders applications

Update 5 July:

We’ve had a huge number of applications for our September to December markets—thank you so much! To catch up and reply to everyone, we’ve temporarily closed our application form. It looks like we’ll be fully booked for illustrations, prints, jewellery, and ceramics. We’re a small team, so it might take us a bit to get through everything. Thanks for your patience!

“Had a really enjoyable time being a stallholder. Geraldine and her team are very approachable, organised, and experienced, which meant I had a highly successful day.  Thoroughly recommended” Wendy Norton

“I booked a suitcase size pitch at the first Windmill Hill market and it’s surprising how much you can fit into the space if you’re creative. It was such a lovely day, chatting to loads of friendly people and the atmosphere was buzzing so I’d definitely take part again!”  La Folle Accessories
