Become a trader!

The heart of the local community

Parkhead Market is situated in the heart of Glasgow’s East End, inside the Forge Shopping Centre. With over 70 units and dozens of traders, our market offers a wide range of products. These range from modern fashion and hand drawn digital art to more traditional offerings such as haberdashery, fresh meat and fish counters and a range of sit in and takeaway foods. Some of our traders have even been with us for over 20 years! Parkhead Market has recently been renovated – so we have a good selection of units available. We’re on the the lookout for new and established independent businesses to trade with us!
