Continental Market Returns to Loch Lomond Shores
Loch Lomond Shores is delighted to welcome the return of the hugely popular Continental Market for 5 days in August to coincide with The Great Scottish Swim, which takes place on Saturday 24th August on Loch Lomond, with the event expected to draw over 2000 swimmers and high numbers of spectators.
From Thursday 22nd August to Monday 26th August, the shopping complex and visitor attraction at Balloch will once again be transformed in to a bustling bazaar.
Professional market traders from across Europe will be offering visitors a wide range of culinary delights and exotic produce. Firm favourites such as freshly prepared paella, Provence-style chicken and potatoes, French crepes and macaroons, Greek olives and German meats on the barbeque will all be available.
There will also be a selection of beautifully crafted products including handmade garden furniture along with stylish gifts and accessories.

"The Continental Market at Loch Lomond Shores is like no other and due to its popularity with our visitors; we decided to bring it back. Our visitors love to soak up the atmosphere of the market and with the array of mouth-watering foods and nibbles on offer, everyone is catered for.
"As it coincides with Loch Lomond Shores hosting the Great Scottish Swim on Saturday 24th August where we are expecting 2000 swimmers, it's going to be a fantastic weekend to be at Loch Lomond Shores."
