Quickly following on the success of the March market with increase in footfall and stall holders, we are going to relaunch the market on Saturday 7 April. It is Easter weekend and as such there will be numerous entertainment events all day, including an Easter egg hunt. There will be live music, a circus act, hair braiding, face painting and a science festival courtesy of Scottish Parliament funding.
We now have a centre piece in the form of a large teepee tent, supplied for free by Nordic Outdoor, and all new banners, posters and flags promoting the new name, Portobello Market. Each month a new A‑board will advertise the next market’s entertainment.
COME ALONG: A large presence is needed to swell the numbers and encourage community participation in all the events, so please do make time to come down and visit. It is hoped, but not yet confirmed, that the Evening News will run an article prior to the market.
