Curated Aberdeen: Meet the Stallholders
Posted 5th Jun 2021
The Curated Aberdeen market is located in the lower mall of Bon Accord behind Costa, and has space for around 30 stallholders to sell their wares.
A number of local producers and creatives from across the north-east have signed up, including craft beer companies, gin distillers, handmade crafters, silversmiths, artisan food producers and more.
The indoor market will be open Friday to Sunday every week! In addition to the main market, organisers are planning themed days, workshops and crafting events set to take place in the space over the coming months. All stall holder fees go directly to Charlie House as part of its charity partnership with Bon Accord.
Some stallholders will be coming back within the next few weeks so you won't miss out on their products! We spoke to a few this weekend to find out more about them...
Marko Steiger set up Palm Safe, after being made redundant due to the oil price crash, to help tackle the virus.
They come in 60ml, 250ml, 500ml and 5l bottles and an array or different scents to suit everyone, from candy cane to watermelon.
They also work in collaboration with Man Chat, a support group for men struggling with mental health.
After having success at the Christmas Market in Bon Accord, Scent 22 have returned.
The business started almost a year ago due to Covid-19 after the owner decided to try a new project.
They currently supply candles, wax melts and diffusers but are hoping to bring new products to the market shortly...
