Victoria Park Market
How has it taken me almost 9 months to a visit Victoria Park Market which is only a short bus ride from my house?! Located in between Bonner Gate and Gore Gate, Victoria Park Market runs every Sunday from 10am-4pm with a number of local traders selling fruit and vegetables and meats and cheeses plus a great line up of street food stalls.
We visited a number of stalls and my jeans were bursting at the seams by the time I had finished munching away! Traders do change regularly so make sure you check their website for updates! If they aren’t still trading at Victoria Park, check out some of the other great street food stalls such as Kerb and Street Feast.
