WATCH: What is the Govanhill Swap Market?


Opened in September, the Govanhill Swap Market is a new concept in Glasgow’s southside. 

Not only can you ‘swap’ items, gaining varying levels of  points for donations based on supply and demand, but you can also swap skills and knowledge too. Govanhill is one of Scotland’s most diverse neighbourhoods, so the Swap Market has Romanes and Urdu translaters available to help with the interactions.


Funded through the Climate Challenge Fund, Glasgow City Council and Awards For All. It challenges the the notion of whee we place value.
