About the market

We are Scotland’s largest purpose-built indoor market and are located on the east side of Glasgow, just 10 minutes from the city centre. Our 85,000 sq ft facility is seen as a Glaswegian institution that attracts customers and traders from far and wide.

Our family friendly Market is centrally heated, and all the stalls have mains electricity supply and secure shutter blinds. All traders have access into their stalls seven days a week with The Market being open on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 10.00 am – 5.00 pm to the general public.

The Forge Market sells a wide range of goods, services only found in our market and contains 180 individual units of varying sizes occupied by over 110 individual traders. Within the market we also have a two-level Benson’s café which can seat up to 200, a coffee shop, seafood bar, Chinese restaurant/takeaway plus an Amusement Arcade. For the kids we have trampolines and bumper cars. There are modern public toilets with disabled facilities and a baby changing room. If you are feeling lucky you should visit our Lotto kiosk which is based beside our cash machine. In 2012 The Forge Market became the first indoor market in Britain to implement Free Wi-Fi for all traders and public alike. Our traders also accept card payments with many offering a delivery services also.

Externally we have 5 standalone industrial units that are currently occupied by WeePlay Soft Play and Jem’s Carpets. We boast a huge free dedicated car park with spaces for over 450 vehicles plus 30 disabled parking spaces. So what are you waiting for!! Don’t be left out in the cold while shopping for bargains, come and have a day out at the market.

Our events

We believe a market is more than just a place to shop – it’s about community and a place to meet friends, chat and reconnect. A place to experience new things together and to have fun. A place where you can find events that celebrate who we are as a nation and what we do.
