Gifts and Food

Sat, 2nd – 3rd December – Primary Christmas Pop Up – Primary

We think Primary is a bit of a hidden gem in Nottingham – it’s just a 3 minute walk from Canning Circus. It’s home to creatives and the brilliant Small Food Bakery. This weekend you can buy unique gifts from local businesses, crafts people and artists in relaxed and creative space.

Plus there’s an all day lunch, craft beer, patisserie and chocolate from: Small Food Bakery, Ottar Chocolate, Black Iris and Outpost Coffee.

We’ve tried, tested and loved products from the bakery, Pop Press, Skin Elixir, Ottar Chocolate and Outpost Coffee but we’re excited to see all of the other stalls too!
