A Farmers’ Market is a market where farmers, growers and producers from throughout Scotland sell their produce direct to the public. All foods/products sold are grown, reared, caught, brewed, pickled, baked, smoked, or made/prepared by the producer. 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 supply chain from field to fork. This puts money back into the local economy, sustaining and creating jobs.

To find most of Farmers’ Markets in Scotland visit the Scottish farmers' website to check if there is one where you are.
