Organisers of Wick's outdoor community market are preparing for a busy spell with two events in July following on from the June one this weekend.

The market is run by the Royal Burgh of Wick Community Council (RBWCC) in Market Square on the last Saturday each month, normally from 9.30am to 4pm or occasionally into the evening.

The June market is this Saturday (June 25). Then there will be an extra date on Saturday, July 23, marking the start of the town's gala week, as well as on July 30.

Community council vice-chairman Allan Farquhar said: "There will be a range of products with local arts, crafts and food-and-drink producers all having stalls. There are still places available for micro and small business enterprises.

"It certainly brightens up the town centre and attracts additional footfall from locals and visitors alike. Hopefully it will grow into a thriving event to benefit the town on a long-standing basis."

Marquees are available from RBWCC, funded by the Beatrice offshore wind farm.

A draft of the terms and conditions can be provided.
