Your Community Market
Due to Coronavirus regulations, the West Linton Market cannot operate. Please check back with us for the latest updates (via our Facebook page).
Please note, many of our stallholders are offering to deliver product to customers. Click here find their contact details.
We would like to invite you to come and visit the West Linton Market and stock up on all your favourites. We regularly have well over two dozen stalls to choose from! You might be surprised to find it's the largest market in the area!
Our next Saturday morning market starts at 9:30am, the first weekend of the month.
Please come and visit!
Keep an eye out for our latest poster to get an idea of what stalls are planning on visiting! We try to have a variety of stalls each month, both old and new.
Monthly stall information is posted around West Linton, and in the surrounding communities (Biggar, Carlops, Blyth Bridge, Dolphinton, Broughton, Peebles, Skirling and Romanno Bridge). You can also find details on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Our un-dated laminated poster can often be found posted on noticeboards and bus shelters in smaller local communities, listing products we regularly have available for sale.
THE VILLAGE MARKET
Local fresh food, art and wares from around our community.
Our market is held the first Saturday of every month from 9:30AM until 12:30PM - weather permitting (check our Twitter and Facebook accounts - links above - for any last minute updates).
The June market typically coincides with the Whipman rideout. The rideout (typically 75+ horses and riders) passes the New Church Hall at around 10:10am. Parking during this market can be challenging to visitors outwith West Linton. Access is much easier after 10:30am, once the rideout has cleared the ford in the village.
We also host a special Christmas market during the evening hours in late November. This is held from 6pm until 8:30pm on the Thursday evening when the Christmas lights in West Linton are switched on. This is typically the last thursday of the month.
January and February markets?
Please check social media and local posters to see if we are hosting markets during January and February. These markets may not be on the first Saturday of the month and are weather dependent.
The market is held in St. Andrews New Church Hall and in the forecourt, located in the heart of the village centre (on the road behind the clock tower).
Our Market vendors sell their food, art and crafts, made or sourced from around the local area. We regularly offer a good mix of farmers market and craft market.
We expect our vendors to sell produce and handmade products made in Scotland at our monthly markets. We promote Scottish food provenance and the local food industry with the KeepScotlandTheBrand campaign.
Most of our vendors sell directly to customers only at market stalls. Your purchases may be keeping them in business! The Justacard website explains all about this.
