Black Isle Community Markets
Covid-19 Community Markets update
Culbokie and North Kessock Community Markets have recently re-opened in their respective village Halls for the first time since March 2020, and will continue on their usual monthly schedule. 2022 markets start(ed) in Culbokie and North Kessock on 22 and 29 January. Discussions are in progress with a view to re-starting Cromarty market.
The outdoor markets started in April 2020 are continuing. They are held in Culbokie and North Kessock on Saturday mornings, and fish, venison, beef and chocolate are regularly available.
For anyone attending, please act responsibly and observe Covid-19 restrictions currently in force.
Payments are by contactless card.
The markets will take place at:
Findon Hall Car Park between 10am and 11am
North Kessock Village Hall Car Park from 11.30am to 12.30pm
The friendly atmosphere and top notch products available at the Black Isle Community Markets are bringing shoppers out in force.
From August 2018, in normal times, there are four Community Markets on the Black Isle each month - at Cromarty, North Kessock and Culbokie, and now Fortrose as well. Cromarty, North Kessock and Fortrose are run by TBI, and Culbokie (formerly known as Ferintosh), by the Culbokie Community Trust.
Markets have been restricted by Covid-19. See the Covid-19 update panel at the top of the page.
From locally produced food to crafts and soaps, and a ’swap your stuff‘ stall where no money need change hands, there should be something there to appeal to all tastes. Transition Black Isle also has its own information stand at its markets so you can come along and find out more about us and get involved.
In contrast to rushing round the supermarket and braving the checkout queues, community markets can be an altogether gentler and more sociable affair with the chance to talk to the producers direct and catch up with your friends and neighbours over tea and home baking. At Cromarty, soup lunches are also available - each arranged by a local community group as a fundraiser.
