The Super Saturday community events follow consultation with the people of Fraserburgh who expressed support for having their own local market.

The upcoming events will bring fantastic opportunities to support and buy local, whether it’s exquisite cakes and baking, the best local catches from our own coast line or quality, local meats.

All of this and more - including crafts - will be available to buy from specialist stall holders from 10am to 3.30pm in Saltoun Square.

As part of this month’s Active Fraserburgh theme, visitors will be able to find out about - and even try out - some of the activities available right on our doorstep.

The fantastic Climbing Wall and Street Sports activities will be available in the square and there will be representation from a host of local sports clubs, including young footballers and basketball players.

Once again, local DJ Alan Strachan of West Park Productions will be the compare for the day keeping everyone entertained and introducing local musical talent.

The events last year saw the town centre heaving with activity as townsfolk and visitors thronged to enjoy the activities and stalls and visit local shops and businesses.

Town centre cafes and restaurants added to the continental atmosphere with their outdoor table service, allowing parents to relax as the children enjoyed the activities.

Fraserburgh Forward Business Association and Fraserburgh Development Trust say they have received fantastic support and encouragement from everyone at Aberdeenshire Council, with the council’s financial support making these events possible.

Organisers hope everyone has a fantastic time on May 9 and look forward to hearing feedback from visitors.
