Christ­mas mar­ket

Lennox Herald - - NOTEBOOK -

Fes­tive mar­kets will take over Lomond Shores in Bal­loch this week­end.

On Satur­day and Sunday from 10am to 6pm, shop­pers are ex­pected to flock to the vis­i­tor at­trac­tion look­ing for gift in­spi­ra­tion and to soak up the fes­tive at­mos­phere.

The ar­ti­san craft mar­ket will pro­vide hand­made gifts, in­clud­ing art prints, jew­ellery, cards and more.

Food­ies can also snap up lots of fresh pro­duce, hand­made food in­clud­ing cakes and fudge, plus more from lo­cal food and drink pro­duc­ers.

This will be the last mar­ket week­end at Loch Lomond Shores be­fore the new year.

All the pro­duce comes from lo­cal Scot­tish busi­nesses.

Adding to the fes­tive at­mos­phere will be live mu­sic dur­ing the week­end from lo­cal singer-song­writ­ers.

An­drew John­ston will be per­form­ing on the Satur­day, and Lisa Kowalksi will take to the stage on Sunday, both 12 noon un­til 4pm.

Kids from Dance­base Academy will also be per­form­ing as part of a fundrais­ing event on the Sunday only.

Clare Gem­mell, Loch Lomond Shores’ gen­eral man­ager, said: “The Christ­mas mar­kets are al­ways a great way to get you in the fes­tive spirit.

“Fresh air, buy­ing gifts, great mu­sic and the smell of freshly cooked food just sums it all up.”
