Glasgow’s former fish market is being transformed into Little India for Scotland’s biggest ever festival of Indian food.

Stalls representing the six main culinary regions of India will be serving a total of 36 dishes at the event in The Briggait in the centre of the city on Saturday and Sunday July 14 and 15.

Built in 1873, the Grade A listed building occupies almost an entire city block on the north bank of the Clyde and was the city’s fish market for over 100 years.

It has been described by Historic Scotland as ‘Scotland’s most important collection of surviving market halls’.

There will be live cookery demonstrations, performers in traditional dress, sitar and tabla players, DJs who will play a succession of Indian music, drinks, including cocktails and mocktails, based on Indian ingredients.

There will also be a children’s play area with face painting and costumes for dressing up as Indian characters with prizes for the best entrants. ‘Scotland’s Indian Food Bazaar – A Culinary Journey’ will be open from noon to 10 pm each day.

Admission is free.
