Birmingham’s artisan market; just one of the many reasons to walk to Edgbaston Village

11 May 2022

This weekend, homeowners at Port Loop can enjoy the second monthly Birmingham Artisan Market of the year; just a 25 minute walk from our new island neighbourhood.

On Saturday 14th May, you can join hundreds of others perusing stall upon stall of local traders, selling artisan food and drink as well as handmade arts and crafts. Plus, cheese, bread, fruit, vegetables, bakery and butcher produce will all be available from the additional Farmers Market stalls.

Last month, it was great to bump into our homeowners Nichola and Alex whilst browsing the artwork on offer.

Located on Greenfield Crescent, the Artisan Market is on the second Saturday of the month between 10.30am and 3pm. Friendly dogs are welcome too! Plus, from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 July, there will be a special Commonwealth Market between 12pm and 6pm.

And the market is just one of the many reasons why you should take the 25 minute walk from Port Loop to Edgbaston Village.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with the wide array of food options. There’s the newly-opened Chapter which everyone’s talking about, Michelin-starred Simpsons, Italian deli, restaurant and bar, Laghi’s Deli, Boston Tea Party and Village Kitchen. You can work your way through the extensive wine collection at the multi award-winning Loki Wine. And don’t forget to pick up a gelato ice lolly from LA POP! Plus, with the days getting warmer, it’s the perfect time of year to take advantage of the fantastic beer gardens at Blue Piano, The Physician and The High Field.

Edgbaston is also home to the renowned Birmingham Botanical Gardens. As well as being a beautiful place to relax (with a great play area for the kids) and get to know the local peacocks, the Victorian glasshouses, bandstand and gardens have a full schedule of events for the summer, ranging from art workshops, to outdoor theatre and cinema screenings and live music.

If you’ve just moved into Port Loop and are looking for some interior inspiration, there’s OKA, BoConcept, Neptune and LUX Art Gallery (featuring many local artists) to help you out. Independently-owned, KIN is a favourite of ours, stocking Scandinavian home and lifestyle products; all of which would look fabulous in our newly arrived Row House homes!

And if you want to carry on exploring, there’s four newly-launched blue-plaque walks to help you discover the heritage of Edgbaston and Harborne. If you take the North Edgbaston Walk you can cut back down to Port Loop from Rotton Park Road, head down Gilliot Road and past the reservoir.

At the end of all that, you’ll have earned the right to put your feet up - hopefully with some local cakes to enjoy!
