AFFA Fine Christmas Open Air Market at Crathes

Welcome to AFFA Fine Open Air Market, Aberdeen's newest regular outdoor retail experience, supporting and promoting local business. We bring together local makers and market traders within a socially distanced open air market. Free entry and free parking (for NTS patrons only, not-NTS patrons £3) available closeby. Promoting local food and drink, arts and crafts, repurposing and upcycling, clothing and accessories, home and garden, and so much more.

When you have finished browsing the bargains, enjoy the surroundings of Crathes Castle, stop off for a coffee and cake at the 1702 Cafe, and stroll round the Estate. Why not make a day of it and support the National Trust for Scotland (charges apply for entry to the Gardens),

Truly a great retail experience for you!

Free parking (for NTS patrons only) is available on site in the Overflow Carpark (nearest one to the Events Field). We respectively ask that you do not park on the roadsides as there is plenty parking available in the allocated event parking. You will be directed by our stewards on how and where to park. Toilets and wash facilities are available closeby at 1702 Cafe.

The Market will be held in the Guides Events Field which is located on left as you come up the main driveway to Crathes Castle.
