A leading Aberdeen business organisation has welcomed the return of a popular street market to the heart of the city.
The Belmont Street Market, which is now under the management of Moray Farmers Market Ltd, will return to the city centre on Saturday, July 29 from 9am to 3pm.
It will be held on the last Saturday of the month and in December the market will run every Saturday prior to Christmas.
The market, which was last held in May, had been running for 17 years under previous ownership.
Aberdeen Inspired has been working with the new owners to reintroduce the market to the city centre and bring back an important part of retail activity in the area.
Geoff Cooper, Aberdeen Inspired city centre manager, said:
“We’re very pleased to have supported the return of the Belmont Street market which was always very popular with residents and visitors to the city centre.
“The market brings a lot of energy and vibrancy to Belmont Street and it is great to see the large crowds who visit the stalls throughout the day. Many of the favourite stalls will be returning and the market will also showcase local products from Aberdeen and the wider North-east.
“We hope people turn out and support the re-launched market so it can have a sustainable future for many more years to come.”
Aberdeen Inspired is the banner under which the Aberdeen BID operates. It is a business-led initiative within the city centre in which levy payers within the BID zone contribute.
Proceeds are used to fund projects designed to improve the business district. More information about Aberdeen Inspired is available at www.aberdeeninspired.com
