Small typical market in the centre of the city. Do not hesitate to visit it. Lovely place with a great choice of street food.

It's a mixture of market stalls for shopping and eating/drinking. It's lovely & fascinating wandering around leisurely. The food stalls sell different cuisine.

This is a lovely place to potter around taking in all the sights and smells. There are lots of wonderful food stalls with a street food vibe and lots of other interesting things to look at; we particularly enjoyed the vinyl record store.

There are so many shops here and in the Corn Market. The building is amazing. I love spending time here especially the stall which sells old photos of Bristol and surrounding area. Lots of ideas for Christmas presents here. I could spend hours here.

Came across this market by accident and was surprised by the mix of vendors - it was a really wet day, and still relatively early so the full array of stalls were open. We thought that it was an interesting g place to spend sometime

I saw several small(ish) dogs on leads when I was there - the alleyways can be a bit narrow

The clothing stalls are the more unusual items - certainly not your run of the mill high street stuff. Don' remember seeing any shoe stalls, but there might very well be.
