A popular outdoor market will return to Fraserburgh this month with a new theme for the summer season - The Great Outdoors.

The first Super Saturday of the year will be held on May 14 in Saltoun Square and Broad Street from 10 am and will be opened by the Fraserburgh Royal British Legion Pipe Band.

Teresa McCallion, Super Saturday Coordinator, said: “The theme is the great outdoors.

“So whether you are interested in walking, nature, gardening, cycling or something else, there should be something for you.”

The May market will also see the Super Saturday team working in collaboration with a road safety and eco campaign Go Safe and Sustainable with various displays including an electric car demo, a beer goggles test and a Eco Space Simulator.

The Climbing Wall is set for a return alongside a new Bike Track facility with a selection of stalls old and new to the market including The Kitchen of the Old Dragon, S & J’s and Rhiannon.

First timers Tatenda will have a T-shirt and beads stall while members of the Fraserburgh Hillwalking Club will be available to see what they offer.

Entertainment will be provided by local duo M2 making their first Super Saturday appearance with other first timers Broch Sounds.

Bennachie Fiddlers who entertained the crowd last August will also perform, introduced and supported by well -known local DJ, Brian Topping who is the compere for the day.

Ms McCallion said: “Super Saturdays are only possible because of the financial support provided by Aberdeenshire Council and because of all the support received from local businesses and the public so please continue to support us.

“Come along on May 14th, it will be super.”

Super Saturday was shortlisted for 2014’s Surf Awards.
