A NEW summer event is set to launch in Kilwinning this month.

And organisers are hoping that it will provide an opportunity to showcase "the best of Kilwinning".

The Main Street Market is set to begin in the town later this month - taking place on Friday, June 30 from 10.30am until 3.30pm.

Thereafter, it will continue to run throughout the summer, on the last Friday of July, August and September.

Traders with stalls at the event will have access to set up from 9am onwards.

This brand new and exciting additon to the town calendar will see a range of small businesses and crafters come to the Kilwinning Main Street to showcase their products to the public.

Aaran McDonald, chair of Choose Kilwinning, who organised the market, says he is excited to welcome the new event to the town, and the opportunities it brings.

He commented: "This new venture is at the heart of our approach to events.

"We are looking to do events which show the best of Kilwinning,our small businesses and our traders.

"The market will give people the chance for a variety of new traders aswell as the chance to visit our fantastic main street shops."

For anyone interested in getting involved in the market, organisers are still taking bookings.
