Scope and Content Fruit Market, Nos 60-106 Candleriggs, Glasgow This complex was founded in 1817 as the Bazaar, by James Cleland, to house the city's green and cheese markets. It was subsequently greatly enlarged and reconstructed, to become the city's fruit and vegetable market. This shows the type of traffic using the market in 1965. The corner of the market is on the left, with a typical platform lorry of the period on the left. Horse lorries, such as the one seen in the centre here, were still used for short-distance transport to and from the market. Many of the buildings round the market were used as produce stores. This market closed in 1968, when a new fruit market was opened at Balornock, where road access is much easier. After a period of disuse the old market was converted to house a range of leisure and retail uses. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
