Fantastic mixture of items for sale and great family atmosphere

Really can't recommend this market enough. Brilliant atmosphere and amazing independent retailers. Definitely head along

A carefully curated market full to the brim with amazing high quality makers! A must if you are local or visiting Glasgow

I’ve never been to another market like Super Market! The quality of stall holders, friendly atmosphere and music selection at their markets beats any other I’ve been to. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Fantastic selection of friendly, small independent businesses under one roof- great for a wander and, of course, shopping. Go visit if it's a Supermarket day...or any of their pop ups.

The Stalls ...Great choice, with truly courteous, enthusiastic and engaged stall holders and entrepreneurs. No one was pushy, it was an eclectic and fun day. Future to do list? Try the scran and check out a workshop. Thanks! Roll on the next one ⭐️
