The Market Place

The Market Place is a community space, café and shop used by local people, community groups and organisations.

You can now located in Barrhead and Newton Mearns. 

As well as a comfortable space to read a book, have a blether or get involved, The Market Place offer support to community groups and activities, local information, and an opportunity for people to shape the services around them.

Supporting local enterprise is an important part to what we do, providing an opportunity for local entrepreneurs to display and sell their products.

Use our Space

Our relaxed and friendly environment is ideal for groups, meet-ups and workshops, providing a space for small groups and individuals to test and grow ideas without the worry of high venue costs. 

The Market Place also offers practitioners a place to connect and work with the local community, hosting information sessions, drop-ins and other types of engagement work.

Get Involved!

The Market Place couldn’t do the fantastic work it does without our wonderful volunteers.

We offer volunteering opportunities for all abilities, valuing every person’s unique skills and encouraging them to develop and grow with us.

From helping in our cafe, running a group or simply sorting through donations, there is something to suit everyone.

If you have a few hours every week and would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you.
