Community Market history
In 2020 with the advent of Covid-19 lockdown measures the monthly Community Market had to be indefinitely postponed. However, under the initiative of local traders they set-up a weekly Market on the Cairn Housing site adjacent to the Church. This has proved very popular and given the continuing refurbishments (August 2020) to the Findon hall, new roof, disabled access toilet this style of market has certainly filled the gap. The first 8 photographs in the Gallery give an indication of what is on offer.
The ninth and tenth photographs show the advertising that went into preparing the way for the introduction of what was initially called the "Ferintosh Community Market" in 2008.
Unfortunately photos of the early years have gone 'missing' so we jump 8 years when the History Group displayed publicity material including the metal detectorist's finds from the Galscairn site. Then we move forward 2 years to the 10th Anniversary Market in May 2018. The Ross-shire Journal publicity for the 10th Anniversary Market can be viewed here which will also describe the setting up of the Market back in 2008.
