Since 2013, the Bath Vintage and Antiques Market has bloomed into one of the most loved antique markets in the West Country of England. It takes place once a month and keeps on growing in popularity and getting larger. This is largely due to the lovely vendors that tout their wares here, and the friendly and welcoming atmosphere created by both the vendors and the organizers. Whether a seasoned pro or a casual shopper, this market embraces all and provides something for everyone.
The venue for the Bath Vintage and Antiques Market is wonderfully fitting. It is located in the center of the city, in the historic Green Park Station. This is a beautiful, listed Victorian building with a stunning vaulted curved glass roof. The whole of the city of Bath is steeped in history, making it the perfect place for a bustling antique market and what better location than Green Park Station. It also allows for all the vendors to be undercover, which is ideal for the unpredictable English weather.
The goods on sale at the Bath Vintage and antique market are of the highest quality, and there is a wonderful variety to be found here. On offer are decorative ornamental antiques, mid-century furniture large and small, vintage clothing, jewelry collections, silver, artwork, prints and posters, sculpture, gardening equipment, kitchen equipment, textiles, lighting and other interiors and a whole load of curios. Some of the vendors are dab hands with design and upcycling, so it is also a great place to go for inspiration and advice.
At the Bath Vintage and antique market itself are some excellent cafes and restaurants, so shoppers can stay on the go all day. All-day breakfasts are available, plus a fine selection of other refreshments. The market is obviously situated in the city center though, so within minutes is everything that the city has to offer.
