Two popular Glasgow food markets have been named amongst the most popular in the UK - outside of London

Food markets in Glasgow provide an affordable, exciting, and eclectic range of different food options across Glasgow - and according to research done by a small business supplier, two food markets in the city are amongst the best in the UK.

Markets open up exciting opportunities for aspiring chefs in the food industry as well as offering new and innovative food options to customers. Several markets across the city have a lot of food provision, like the Barras or Park Lane Market - but only two were named amongst the most popular.
