Farmers’ Markets – Make Sure It’s The Real Thing
Producers from all over Scotland have worked hard over the last ten years to make Farmers’ Markets a household name. Working closely with rural crafts and other food producers, farmers have brought fresh, local produce into city, towns and villages, offering consumers an alternative shopping experience. Farmers’ Markets are now a major attraction on the High Street.
The Scottish Association of Farmers’ Markets represents more than 50 Farmers’ Markets in Scotland and has specific criteria for membership. Check out our Market Details page to make sure the market you visit is a member of the Scottish Association of Farmers’ Markets.
For full details of SAFM and how to join go to contact page and email us
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 reduces food miles and the distance from field to fork. This puts money back into the local economy, sustaining and creating jobs.
Do you want to become a producer and want advice from successfully diversified farmers and producers?
Do you want to set up a market in your area or source local produce?
Send us your enquiry by filling in the form on the Contact us page.
