Farmers' Markets

The definition of a Scottish Farmers' Market is a market in which farmers, growers and producers from throughout Scotland sell their produce direct to the public. All foods/products sold should have been grown, reared, caught, brewed, pickled, baked, smoked, or made/prepared by the producer.

Local growers and producers take personal pride in the food they bring to their Farmers' Market and want you to enjoy it. The emphasis is on freshness, quality and value for money.

Buying locally means you can ask how the food is produced and grown and at the same time customer feedback is appreciated by the producer.

Buying locally also reduces food miles and the stages in the food chain from fork to plate. It puts money back into the local rural economy thereby sustaining and creating jobs.

Make the change and buy from your local Farmers' Market.
