Black Isle Community Markets


Community Markets update

January 2023

Martin Sherring has written a new article about the Black Isle Community markets for the Culbokie 'Chatterbox' magazine.

October 2022

Culbokie and North Kessock Community Markets restarted in September 2021 in their respective village Halls for the first time since March 2020, and Cromarty market restarted in April 2022.  All three now take place regularly on their usual monthly schedule - Cromarty on the second Saturday in the month, Culbokie on the third and North Kessock on the last (which may be the fourth or fifth).  See leaflet below for all 2023 market dates.  There is currently no market in Fortrose.

The weekly 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.

Payments are by contactless card.
The markets will take place at:
Findon Hall Car Park between 10am and 11am
North Kessock Pier 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 have been three Community Markets on the Black Isle each month - at Cromarty,  North Kessock and Culbokie.  Cromarty and North Kessock are run by TBI, and Culbokie (formerly known as Ferintosh), by the Culbokie Community Trust.

From locally produced food and preserves to crafts and soaps,  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.

See separate market pages on the menu and the  calendar  and news items for details of individual markets .
