The hugely successful Perth Farmers’ Market has added an extra date to its calendar this year. On the first day of each month, from 9am to 2pm, King Edward Street and St John’s Place become a hive of activity with between 35 and 40 stalls selling the finest produce Scotland has to offer. The additional date for your diary, 17th December, makes it the ideal place to visit for all Christmas goodies including locally produced meat, veg, jams and cakes, and a regular cooking demonstration organised by Cittaslow Perth.
Since its inception in 1999 Perth Farmers’ Market has become a significant part of life for local people and producers. Starting with just 12 stalls on a cold Saturday in April, the market soon became an integral part of the fabric of Perth, supporting local farmers and producers and offering people the opportunity to really engage with their food and discover more about its origins.
There will be no market in January 2012 but will resume usual dates from February onwards. For more information, including an extensive list of stallholders and their produce, visit the Perth Farmers’ Market or Cittaslow Perth websites.
