Leven Artisan Market returns

Tuesday, 23 March 2021

Saturday 8th May 2021 will see the return of Levenmouth Together’s Leven Artisan Market to South Street Leven. The markets launched in 2020, took place on a monthly basis close to the Town Centre and have proved a hit with shoppers and traders alike. Originally held on the second Saturday of the month, the team are now looking to add another monthly date on the fourth Saturday of every month.

The Levenmouth Together project’s main aims are to promote tourism to the Levenmouth area with an emphasis on The Town Centre and feedback from the markets have shown the speciality food and drink and individual crafters and artisans attract increasing numbers of shoppers from out-with the local area who also visit Leven High Street. The team are hoping to create a forum working with Town Centre businesses to hear their views on alternative methods to boost footfall to the town, whilst adhering strictly to government guidelines. Any interested business owners should email the team at [email protected] using the subject heading Leven Business Forum.

Speaking of the market return, Levenmouth Together Chair Brian Robertson-Fern said: “We had initially anticipated the return of the market to be early April, but as lockdown was extended and the majority of Town Centre businesses that we aim to support were unable to open their doors, we felt it would be unfair to do so.” He also indicated that the group had some “exciting news to share” in the next few weeks so has advised that we keep our eyes peeled by following Levenmouth Together on Facebook.

Leven Artisan Market will return on Saturday 8th May 10am until 3pm at South Street / Forth View Car park KY8 4NU with a second May market anticipated on Saturday 22nd. Stalls can be booked via our online shop by visiting www.brag.co.uk/shop
