Aberdeen International Street Market once again makes a return to the City at the beginning of November attracting large numbers of visitors and shoppers, offering an array of products from all over the world.

Aberdeen International Street Market

Throughout the year Aberdeen hosts an International Continental Street Market at Union Terrace. The Market features around 70 stalls displaying and selling food, crafts and gardening supplies from around Europe. France, Belgium, Spain, Holland, Italy and traders from the UK all feature. Large numbers of shoppers and visitors will be attracted over the weekend of 1-3 November.


The market, which was voted top in the UK for 2011, is the only genuine international market in the north of Scotland and is expected to draw more than 120,000 people into the heart of Aberdeen over the three days. It will feature stalls, among many others, selling the finest cheeses from Italy, France, Holland and England, specialist clothing from Finland, crafts and jewellery from Poland, Thailand, the UK, India, France, China and Indonesia. But the most popular are wooden flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables, plants, garden furniture, herbs and spices and of course, the whole continental atmosphere and food tastings.
