Winner of Glasgow City Council Flourish Award for Sustainable Green Markets

This award is recognition of the hard work and professionalism of everyone on the team and reflects on the progress made in making the markets more environmentally friendly through greater recycling of food waste which in turn is helping to reduce the city’s carbon footprint and contributing to the council’s aim to make Glasgow one of the most sustainable cities in Europe.

Opened in 1969, Scotland’s major fresh produce market operates from a 32-acre site at junction 14 on the M8. The tenant companies supply fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and flowers to a large number of independent retailers, caterers, restaurants, hotels and processors throughout Central and West Scotland.

Comprising of 74 fruit & veg single stances and 6 stances within Scotland’s only inland fish market, over 2 million tons of produce from around the world goes through the market each year, equating to an annual turnover of £250M and 1,000 vehicle movements per day.

City Property Markets, a trading division of City Property (Glasgow) LLP, also operate a number of  Retail and Farmers markets across the city as well as managing the largest weekly Car Boot Sale in Scotland.
