THE UP Helly Aa Shetland Food and Drink Market is set to return next week for a third year running.
The event will take place at Mareel in Lerwick from 12pm to 6pm on Monday (27 January).
Sixteen businesses are lined to appear at the free event, with goods on offer ranging from seafood, alcohol and chocolates to preserves, baked goods and gifts.
A number of new Up Helly Aa-themed products will also be available at the market and live music will be served up from 4pm to 5.30pm.
Shetland Food and Drink manager Claire White said: “Our member businesses look forward to this trading opportunity each year.
“They enjoy face-to-face interaction with their loyal local customers and sharing the story of Shetland produce with visitors to the isles at this special time of year.”
