GALE has been running community markets since June 2000 with the aim of providing an outlet to sell and an opportunity to buy locally made products. Since then there has been a growing interest in local and regional products. Combined with environmental concerns and increasing awareness of food miles, these issues have contributed towards the growth of our Markets.

We now run three markets across the area: Gairloch Community Market is held every Monday all year round at The GALE Centre, teh Local Produce Market is held every Thrusday between May and September at The GALE Centre and Aultbea Community Market is held on the first Friday of every month throughout the year, except January.  

As well as craft and produce stalls there is a community cafe at each Market serving local home baking and refreshments throughout the day. This has helped to make the Markets an important social centre attracting locals and visitors from across the whole area.

Come to our Hogmanay Market at the GALE Center from 10 am to 3pm
