Inverness Indoor Market,

With entrances from Academy Street, Church Street and Union Street, this market was destroyed by fire in 1889 and rebuilt two years later at a cost of £7158. The new market included a spacious central hall and a fish market. There were no permanent stands - each stallholder rented trestle tables from the town council at 6d per day. Nairn fishwives and farmers' wives sold fish, eggs, fowls, piglets and dairy produce. The market hall was also used for flower shows and side-shows. The tables could be pushed to the side to make room for the spectators. Today the market comprises of separate shops under one roof.
