LITTLE DUNNING MARKET
was originally a feeing market held in Dunning in October. In the 1800s there was a riot at the market during which a man was killed. The Perth authority took the right to hold such a market away from Dunning and so it moved to Perth under the name of Little Dunning Market, continuing to be held annually till 1938.
The present event is to remember the old fairs, not as a feeing market, but to display and sell the wonderful variety of local produce: Arts and crafts, fruit and veg., fun and games. It is also a showcase for local clubs, societies and charities, and a great social occasion with fun for traders and customers young and old.
What started as a one-off event to celebrate 500 years as a Burgh of Barony (click here for explanation) has become a much anticipated annual event.
