Angus Farmers Market
There’s an abundance of summer treats for everyone this Saturday July 11th at the Angus Farmers’ Market in the Strathmore Hall, Forfar. Angus is of course the home of first class soft fruits – look for punnets of locally grown strawberries and raspberries, full of goodness and flavour. Keeping to the summer theme the children's cookery club will be making sticky and sweet strawberry tarts, and why not try tasty venison kebabs made with Moroccan spices - perfect for summer barbeques.
Stirling Farmers' Market – also this Saturday, July 11th., in Port street 10 – 4 with lots of delicious barbecue themed food, with cheeses, home baking, fresh fruit, flavoured gins and country wines as accompaniments. Not to be missed!
Community Food Fund Grants and Support now open - the scheme is being administered by SRUC.
Welcome to the Scottish Association of 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"
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.

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.
