October's Farmers' and Producers' Market is here
From 9am on Thursday 19th October, the Farmers' and Producers' Market returns to the Market Place, bringing a fabulous selection of locally produced food and drink, hand-crafted items, art and more. And Mellanby's is back with their locally grown seasonal vegetables - always popular!
The Farmers' and Producers' Market is a great opportunity to support independent local businesses, ensure low food miles, and shop with traders who know all about what they're selling.
The Market will be open from 9am until approximately 4pm, or earlier if the stalls sell out (which sometimes happens).
Here's who you'll find at this Thursday's Farmers' and Producers' Market:
Broom House Farm - Aberdeen Angus beef, lamb & pork from this local organic farm
Westholme Farm - locally reared beef and lamb, as well as sausaged and burgers
