The Famous Barras Market

Saturday 07 March 2020 8am – 4pm | From Ross Street to Bain Street, The Gallowgate to London Road

The Barras is world famous, and well known as the market place to purchase a bargain in the East End of Glasgow. The Barras Market is a mixture of street markets, indoor markets, shops and pubs. Just about anything can be purchased at the Barras, with items ranging from antiques to a pair of work boots! The Barras Market has a long tradition in the East End of Glasgow, with hawkers selling from handcarts (barras) in the early part of the 20th Century.

It is well worth while spending a couple of hours just walking around, taking in the sights and sounds, and soaking up the atmosphere. You never know what you might find!
