Doon the Markets: Remembering old school Glasgow Markets back in time in 20 pictures

Heading down the markets in Glasgow was a weekly occurence for many Glaswegians back in the day - today we’re bringing back old memories through 20 pictures of the old fruit market, the Barras, Briggait, Paddy’s Lane, and more

Old school Glaswegian marketplaces - there’s no where else like them in the world, today we wanted to honour that market culture by looking back at some of our very favourite photos of the markets back in time.

Markets served as the back bone for the working class week - many of us will remember heading down the markets every Sunday to pick up some stock for the week ahead, and maybe a wee treat if you were lucky.

Many Glaswegians will share happy memories from days down the markets, take a look below as we remember times spent down the Briggait, Old Fruitmarket, the Barras, and more.
