Trading since 1743, St Nicholas Market is the oldest and best loved market in Bristol. Named as one of the ten best markets in the UK, this vibrant and buzzing market place can be found in the heart of the old city.

Surrounded by fantastic examples of Georgian Architecture, it is a stone’s throw from Bristol Shopping Quarter and the central Bristol hotels. The Glass Arcade in which it is housed is a Grade 1 listed building, and its historical architecture, quirky ambience and fantastic maze of stalls bursting with goods and food items combine to make a unique place to relax. 

St Nicholas Market is also home to several street markets which take place in the streets adjacent to The Exchange Building. Every week, a farmer's market (Wednesday), a food market (Friday) and the Nails Market (Friday and Saturday) join the offering enhancing an already quintessential market experience.
