The need for a farmer’s Market in Glendale had been identified by the Local Development Officer, Elgar Finlay, in 2012. Following local resident surveys and conversations with potential suppliers, the Glendale Trust, the local community body, helped the market raise funds for the purchase of eight market stalls.
In the summer of 2015 these had been put up in the grounds of the Glendale Hall for the first time and has been operating there every summer since.
In 2017 The Glendale Highland Market was shortlisted in the Hidden Gem Category for The Scotsman Food & Drink Awards.
The operation of the market is run co-operatively by the stallholders themeselves. Natalie Bayfield, Glendale resident and volunteer is the nominated Director of the Glendale Trust with responsibility for the Market.
