To support businesses in the area, Hamilton BID has launched a new market in the heart of the town centre along Quarry Street every Saturday in August, with around 25-30 stalls.
BID manager Malcolm Thomas-Harley said:
“We know that many people are now shopping online and are perhaps out of their previous routine of visiting the town for shopping and meeting friends.
To support our businesses Hamilton Our Town are launching a brand-new market in the heart of the town centre along Quarry Street every Saturday in August featuring around 30 stalls and entertainment. We are aiming to create a new anchor within Hamilton that will boost footfall, spending and re-engage the public with their town centre community.
What makes this market really special is that it’s led by the businesses in the town through Hamilton Our Town. We have the likes of Henderson’s the butcher, What In Carnation Flowers, Gondolina Pizza and many more high-quality town centre businesses offering something different on their stall.
We’ve teamed up with SHS stall hire who run Loch Lomond Shore market to compliment the town centre businesses rather than competing by delivering a diverse, bespoke and artisan offering alongside our businesses.
We’ve been delighted by the support provided by STP through a grant for this project. These markets could make a huge positive difference to our town and we thank STP and all those involved so far with this ambitious project.”
