Lerwick’s first continental market was in full swing shortly after the stalls were set up under the Fort this morning, with customers browsing through colourful goods from far-flung places.
Market traders from all over the world showed their wares, with organiser Ali Yaich saying it was bringing “something different” to Shetland. Thailand carvings, dream catchers from Mexico, Italian biscuits, Moroccan and Italian leather handbags and Greek and Turkish sweets were all on sale, with customers buying briskly.
Mr Yaich said: “There are 20 nationalities from all over the world here, and more are coming tomorrow. They couldn’t all get on the ferry last night.” Tomorrow’s arrivals will include plants from Holland, Finnish crafts, German food and Kenyan carvings.
