Nairn was buzzing on Saturday thanks to the new market.

The High Street and Leopold Street were busy with shoppers and more than 60 stalls welcomed brisk business, with some traders having to restock popular items. And shops even took their wares out onto the pavements to woo eager customers.

With the Nairn Show and Nairn Highland Games cancelled this was the first major public event for locals to gather and meet since pandemic-related restrictions eased, and the market was also well attended by visitors to the town.

The event was organised by Nairn BID, whose manager Lucy Harding said: “Nairn BID were very happy to be able to host Inverness Farmers’ Market on Nairn High Street this Saturday.

“The High Street was closed to traffic, and shopkeepers were invited to ‘spill out onto the street’ and advertise special market day offers.

“There was also a ‘crafters’ corner’ up on Academical Square, and a fantastic atmosphere in town all day.

“Nairn BID hopes to make more

markets happen next year, and look forward to hosting the next one on November 27. “
