harbourside market

The bank holiday weekend saw the launch of the Harbourside Market in Bristol. A 3-day event that featured all manner of talented people selling their wares and an event that I felt honoured to be given a stall at. The market lines both sides of the walkway along the river and I chose view over shelter by setting up on the side closest to the river. Weather-wise, we were lucky that the forecasted rain stayed away, with the only slight irritation being the incessant wind which was relentless in its bid to blow away carefully placed products. I was lucky - cakes tend to weigh things down - so the most I had to contend with was flyaway bunting. Oh and my very wind-burnt cheeks at the end of the day.

New additions to the stall included a lemon and semolina cake and a jar full of ginger shortbread biscuits, which went down particularly well with the under-5s. As usual, carrot cake was the best-seller, which had sold out by lunchtime. The Harbourside Market will run every Sunday from now on and it's one I hope will become a regular in Pass the Teapot's market diary.
