An independent trader who planned to run a stall at the Hilltown Indoor Market claims he has been left thousands of pounds out of pocket.
The site and the neighbouring Fit4Less gym were destroyed in a fire on September 12.
The market closed in December 2016 but was about to reopen as home to the charity Tayside Furniture Re-Use Network. The charity also wanted to rent out stalls to traders.
Kenneth Hill, who volunteers at the charity, also planned to run a stall selling antiques and collectables.
He said: “About £50,000-£60,000 worth of furniture and collectables must have been lost.
“I was going to be renting a small stall but we didn’t have insurance. I lost my own home to fire a few years ago so was storing a lot of personal possessions there too.”
Tayside Furniture Re-Use Network said it is now seeking new premises.
