Why Become A Trader AtErrol Sunday Market?
Errol Sunday Market has a fascinating and unusual history. What was once a military airfield with strategic importance is now the location of Scotland’s largest indoor Sunday Market and Car Boot. The Sunday Market is owned and operated by the Morris Leslie Group, which was originally founded over 40 years ago on a farm in Rait, Perthshire. The market is sited at RAF Errol Airfield which was originally a WWII airfield opened during 1942 and used to train Polish & Russian pilots, being disused in 1948. The airfield is the perfect location for a market as it lies halfway between Perth and Dundee and is ideally located to draw visitors from far and wide. With the added bonus that it has free public parking for 2000 cars, enabling regular footfall of 10,000 much to trader’s delight!
Errol Sunday Market recognised the need to provide the buying public with a larger, more comfortable undercover shopping environment to help overcome weather induced fluctuations in sales for the traders. Hence the Market Hall was created, the first phase opened in 2014. Demand quickly grew, with the second phase being completed in 2015 and has proved to be a welcome addition, housing 42 individual shop style units. Each unit has access to mains electricity and the whole complex is centrally heated with a public walkway down the centre of the Market Hall. The indoor market hall unit is an ideal place for start-up and development opportunities for smaller scale businesses.
