Peterhead’s Broad Street is set to host its second Muckle Market of the year this Saturday (July 19).

The market will run from 10am till 3pm where there will be more than 20 stalls selling a range of wares and produce in the heart of the town.

The summer market coincides with the opening day of Peterhead Scottish Week and the crowning of the Buchan Queen and her princesses, and is shaping up to be as popular as ever with local folk and visitors alike.

Market stallholders will be selling everything from handmade jewellery, handbags and cards to confectionery, chutneys and pine garden furniture.

Also making an appearance on Saturday will be Scotland’s Larder, The Owl and the Pussycat Centre and even a recruiting stand for the local pipe band.

Providing entertainment on the day will be popular local singers Alasdair Corbett and Kerry Short.

They will be joined by the team from Buchan Community Radio who will be pumping out tunes throughout the day.

There will also be a special demonstration by belly dancers!

May’s market was hailed a resounding success with all who went along, and it was also blessed with sunshine.

Organisers are hoping to see hundreds descend on Saturday’s festival, when it is hoped the sun will shine once again.
