For hundreds of years, market stances have operated on Market Street — the clue is in the name — close to the location of the town’s medieval mercat cross.
In recent times the stances have attracted second-hand book dealers and craft stalls among others.
But growing concern about the potential dangers of passing traffic to stallholders and customers has led to a decision that stances should be moved and operate from the nearby pedestrianised Logies Lane/Church Square instead.
During a lengthy discussion at Fife Council’s north-east Fife area committee, Councillor David MacDiarmid, seconded by Councillor Donald Macgregor, moved that the stalls should be allowed to stay where they are.
