What is the Heartland Market?

The Heartland Market is a creative space for our local traders to showcase their talents and products, to inspire and entice the community within the heart of Galashiels.

With a focus on featuring the work of independent makers and designers from Galashiels (and beyond). Set up by three woman who independently own local businesses, we are committed to improving the town centre to make it a place to visit, not only for footfall to the market, but all our other amazing retailers and local businesses in and around Galashiels. Our commitment will be to our community, conscious shopping, and mindful making.

Ultimately, with a goal of trying to put the heart back into our home town.

We need you to come on down‚ support us, and put your pennies back into the pavements of your local community. Make it great once more.

Our monthly Saturday morning shall combine art, good food, live music and a fun community spirit under one awesome space. Each session offers visitors a unique experience to shop, explore‚ discover and connect with community. With something for everyone, our monthly market will actively support small, local businesses.

Inspiring small business owners‚ all over Scotland‚ to make a living out of what they love. It’s not all about the transaction, it’s about building relationships and continuing to keep the towns heart beating.
