2021-11-07 2021-11-07 AFFA Fine Open Air Market (Milton of Crathes)


Welcome to AFFA Fine Open Air Market, in partnership with Leys Estate, one of Aberdeenshire's largest regular open air retail experience, supporting and promoting local business and those looking to re-purpose their household items!

We bring together local makers, market traders and car boots within a socially distanced open air market. Promoting local food and drink, arts and crafts, repurposing and upcycling, clothing and accessories, home and garden, and so much more.

Truly a great regular retail experience for you!

We continue to operate a safe and fun event for all involved. We are following all advice available, including spacing out all cars and stalls to ensure adequate spacing. We would encourage all attendees to ensure that they take their own precautions when handling goods and ensure that they respect the wishes of any stand and car holders.

Parking: We have made parking and access as easy as possible. It is free and plentiful right next to Market in the Events Field. Please, no parking in the Milton Carpark, this is for shop patrons only. Access directly off A93 into Milton of Crathes carpark, turn right and through gates into Events Field. You will be directed by the Rotary Club of Banchory-Ternan, our stewards who are volunteers. Any donations would be gratefully received.

Cash: Whilst most vendors take contactless and card payments, some vendors and car booters don't, and they only take cash. So please remember to take some cash with you and please use contactless where at all possible.

No requirement to pre-register but you are encouraged to check-in and out of the market using the QR code on display.

Entry Fee: Free! No longer a requirement to register.

COVID Guidance: If you would like to visit a stand that has shoppers already there, please re-visit the stand when it is less busy. Please utilise hand sanitiser wherever available and please no crowding!  And of course, if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID, no matter how small, please do not travel, stay at home and take care of yourself!

Please note that we are currently subject to restrictions due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19. We may therefore have to cancel a market if restrictions are such that it is not possible to stage the event. If this happens, then we would look to move your booking to a future market when it is safe for us to do so. Same would apply if inclement weather is forecast.
