Farmers' Markets in Scotland

Farmers Markets and Farm shops are growing in popularity as places to buy and try local produce. The Farmers Market is helping to reconnect consumers with their local farmers and producers. As well as giving the small farmer a better return it provides two way communication and accountability. Many farms now see their farm shops as an important revenue source. Visitors and locals alike are also keen to reduce their food miles and buying local from Farm Shops and Farmers markets is a great start.
