A festival showcasing local hospitality is coming to Bedminster

Posted on: 02 Sep 2022

Visit East Street this autumn as it transforms into a local hospitality market.


This October, Saturday 1, eat:Bedminster – a showcase of over 50 local food and drink vendors - is coming to the BS3 street.


Between 10:00 and 16:00, attendees will be able to purchase a variety of goods from stalls selling everything from cheeses, baked goods and alcohol for one day only.


More information about this event can be found via eat:Festival's website.

eat:Bedminster is part of eat:Festivals – a not-for-profit social enterprise that hosts a series of hospitality events across the westcountry, connecting communities with the local producers and productive landscape surrounding them.


Visitors will be able to sample and purchase the best food and drink local hospitality vendors have to offer, as well as meeting the teams behind the businesses on their doorstep. 


There is something for everyone at eat:Bedminster, which caters to all dietary requirements including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free. Low and no-alcohol drink options will also be available on the day.


This year’s festival is backed by Bedminster Business Improvement District (BID) to connect the Bristol community together in a celebration of local food and drink.

Bev Milner Simonds, Director and Founder of eat:Festivals said in a statement: "The partnership with Bedminster BID has given us the opportunity to create a new event for the area - showcasing the bricks and mortar businesses that are here all year round and adding some tasty complimentary producers, makers and entertainment.


“Bedminster is unique – offering us fresh opportunities for making local connections, discovering new producers and creating new habits.”


Live music, strolling entertainment and buskers will provide a cheery backdrop to browsing the stalls on offer, as pockets of street-entertainment will be dotted throughout the market.
