Over 50 food and drink stalls will take over East Street for eat:Bedminster on Saturday (September 30) showcasing the very best of local food and drink.

Created to celebrate local street food and producers, eat:Bedminster will see East Street transformed between 10am and 4pm, spotlighting amazing food and drink.

The market will feature everything from street food vendors, handmade preserves and award-winning patisseries, to farmers’ market favourites and plant-based artisan dishes.

Visitors will get a chance to meet local makers, sample and purchase the best food and drink on offer, as well as check out the businesses on East Street.

A not-for-profit social enterprise, eat:Festivals hosts award-winning food and drink festivals across the West Country, to help connect communities with the local producers and showcase the great local food and drink surrounding them.

The festivals are low-cost for traders to attend and for visitors to attend with no entry fees or tickets required.

eat:Bedminster festival is backed by Bedminster Business Improvement District (BID) and Hunters estate agency to connect the Bristol community together in a celebration of local businesses.

eat: Bedminster is being delivered as one of the activities under the City Centre and High Streets Recovery and Renewal programme, funded by Bristol City Council and the West of England Combined Authority’s Love our High Streets project.

After a great event in Spring, this edition of eat:Bedminster will expand into Dean Street to make way for more producers and street entertainment.

There will also be a free-of-charge circus skills workshop happening on Mill Lane. This will provide a cheery backdrop to browsing the stalls on offer, as pockets of entertainment will be dotted throughout the market.

eat:Bedminster coincides with the Bedminster Vintage Bonanza, where 31 traders across eight venues in the area will be offering 10% discount in stores, and the chance to win a £50 voucher, offering visitors another chance to support the local traders in the area.

Bev Milner Simonds, Director and Founder of eat:Festivals, said: “We’re very excited for the latest edition of eat:Bedminster and our partnership with Bedminster BID has given us the opportunity to grow the festival and keep shining a spotlight on the local businesses that are here all year round with food, drink and entertainment.

“We’re looking forward to once again helping the community discover producers and make connections – and hopefully turn them into new regular visitors to Bedminster.”

East Street will be buzzing with music, good food and independent traders on every corner.”
