Visitors to Bristol Christmas Market 2022: Opening dates, location, stalls, Jäger Barn Bar and how to book an igloo">Bristol’s Christmas Market this year may need to check their overdraft facility as food and drink prices remain high like previous years. The market, which opened today under blue skies and sunshine, runs right through to Christmas week, with a vast array of seasonal food and drink on offer.
No trip to the festive market would be complete without a comically large Bratwurst sausage in a roll, slathered with mustard and ketchup. This year, the classic German pork banger will set you back £6, although you can add an extra £1 if you go the whole hog and have the cheese Krakhauer - a red pork sausage with bacon and cheese on top.
Sticking with the piggy theme, The Hog Roast stall is charging £7.50 for roast pork in a round roll or £8.50 in a long roll. Add BBQ sauce and honey and it will be another £1, with cheesy chips an extra £4. Over at Loaded Donuts, the toffee fudge delight is £7, as is the Malteser Magic with its chocolate sauce and crunchy pieces of Malteser.
The cabin next door is selling Belgian hot chocolate for £6. There are eight different flavours on offer including salted caramel and Black Forest. If you want your warming drinks made with oat, almond or soya milk, it’s an extra £1.
One of the most popular stalls over the years has been Yorkshire Pudding Wrap. It’s cash only this time - most of the other stalls have card machines - and the cheapest option is the standard roast pork at £9 a pop.
If it’s pancakes you’re craving, Crepes & Waffles has a full range of sweet and savoury crepes. The classic sugar and lemon is £5, with Nutella and banana at £7. The ham, cheese and mushroom crepe is £8. For vegetarians and vegans, Wrap It has it covered with falafels, meatless hot dogs and skin-on fries. They also serve a toasted wrap comprising ‘vegetarian chicken’, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy and red cabbage for £8.50.
After spending so much on food, you’ll be in need of a stiff drink but with a pint of Pilsner Urquell at £6, cider at £5.50 and a small paper cup of mulled wine at £5, a round of drinks for friends or family may not bring so much festive cheer.
