After successfully founding and running the monthly BS5 Market in St George, Holly's determined to support local producers and talent from her own community convenience store, Butterfingers.
The local BS5 resident is launching a Kickstarter campaign to help fund her new venture. She has just 30 days to raise £10,000 else Butterfingers won't become a reality.
Just a stone's throw from St George park and next door to the recently opened Bristol Loaf, the store will stock fresh fruit and veg, meats and cheese, all the essentials, but with one difference - all the produce will be sourced locally. And it won't just be the essentials, Holly will be linking up with some of the wonderful traders from the BS5 Market to stock their specialist products.
It won't just be the store cupboard essentials though, I'll be constantly on the look out for those special items; like fresh pasta from Bedminster, charcuterie cured in Montpelier and perhaps a snifter of gin distilled in Bristol.
In the evenings and on closed days they will be offering the space to hold workshops, talks and supper clubs. So whether you're a street food stall that wants to offer an extended menu, or you're a silk artist using botanical dyes, this space will provide you with a platform to share your talent and skills. A contribution to this worthy cause may mean a fantastic pop up coming near you soon!
The Kickstarter campaign will go towards buying essentially equipment such as chillers, deli counters and of course a coffee machine. With the deli becoming a pop up paradise in the evening, Holly will also need more fittings in the kitchen with much needed equipment for hosting the perfect supper-clubs.
