Type: Covered Market/Market Hall
Green Park Station is a thriving platform for local life and culture right in the heart of Bath.
The oldest Farmer’s market in Britain runs every Saturday, complete with a range of the freshest and most local produce you can find, including seasonal veggies, choice cut meats and a variety of mouth watering cheeses. An array of friendly independent traders may also be found displaying and selling their wonderful hand crafted or locally sourced goods, which makes it a must for serious foodies and treasure hunters alike.
However, Saturday is not the only day that shopaholics can get their fix. Green Park Station’s permanent tenants include Hackett’s Men’s Hairdressing, Station Antiques & Collectables, Framecraft picture framers, Green Park Leather & Luggage and the Green Park Bike shop.
For day and night entertainment, the Green Park Brasserie has regular live music to complement its delicious meals and carefully selected wines, whilst Green Park Express takes pride in their beautiful coffees and sumptuous Paninis. You can even pick up some fresher than fresh locally grown pork from PJ’s Farm and unbelievably scrumptious ethical bread from The Thoughtful Bread Company.
And finally (as if that’s not enough already), there are also regular events held in the market square, ranging from specialised markets to live Jazz performances. Some of our more regular affairs include:
• The Bath Vintage & Antiques market – Held on the last Sunday of every month, this event prides itself in High Quality Furniture, Jewellery, Decorative Accessories, Vintage Fashion, Silverware, Ceramics, Upholstery, Clocks, Cameras, Books and local arts and crafts.
• The Love Food festival – Consists of hog roast, mulled cider, music, storytelling and a large variety of delicious street food to satisfy the most discerning of food lovers.
• So Natural Baby Festival – An exciting array of stalls showcasing ethical, organic and handmade toys and clothing, as well as workshops and massages, make this reinvention of the traditional baby fair an event not to be missed.
This beautiful building has been a hallmark in Bath for over 130 years, and boasts the original, vaulted iron and glass station roof and signature Bath stone façade.
With events, market days, shops and eateries, be sure to make Green Park Station Your Destination!
