December 20, 2011 Bristol City Council
Bristol City Council are currently in the process of producing a ‘Market Strategy and action plan’
The Vision is To develop Bristol as a City of Markets – enhancing and building on the existing offer to develop a dynamic market experience that is diverse, vibrant and adds value to the economic, social, environmental and cultural fabric of Bristol.
There are 14 regular retail markets currently operating in Bristol. In terms of other major English cities, only Birmingham has more markets in operation and the majority are council run.
Markets play an important role in many of the city’s showcase cultural events e.g. Harbour Festival, Organic Food Festival, Festival of Nature, BrisFest, Foodies and Veggie Fest.
A review of markets was carried out by consultants Roger Tym & Partners and Market Squared in December 2010.
A draft Strategy and Action Plan (pdf, 259 KB) will be consulted on until 13 January 2012. Please email email@example.com.
This deadline has been extended following the Portas Review in the future of our high streets.
