The farmers’ market at the Mart this Saturday will have over 30 stalls of first class produce including many award-winning products.
Louise Myles from Isabella’s Preserves makes wonderful quality jams and preserves that have won many awards including this year a ‘Great Taste’ Gold Award for her chilli jam and a silver award in the ‘jampionships’ for her strawberry jam with pink champagne.
If you are looking for a little comfort food then you can pick up some delicious homemade goodies from Pauline Ewart from the ‘Feed Me Full’ stall.
Pauline made her first trip to Forfar market last October and has quickly become a popular stall with her delicious cakes and tasty savoury foods including her scotch eggs.
The farmers’ market brings seasonal produce to the customer and autumn is a fantastic season for first-class game including grouse, mallard and pheasant.
Nature brings complementary foods together so to add something special to the game you will also find brambles, plumbs and damsons ready for sauces and pies.
Highland Drovers produce succulent Highland beef in various cuts. They also have this month ‘Hamish Burgers’, steak burgers with a haggis centre and Hebridean Lamb that has a flavour all of its own
Kirriemuir Briquette Company will be back with the stallholders this month bringing wood and peat briquettes using locally sourced waste wood, peat and cardboard.
Briquettes are environmentally friendly and emit less than half the legal stipulated emissions. If you need more information you can speak to Mark at the stall.
The great thing about the market is you can pop along and speak directly to the producers to ask them any questions you have about their products with no obligation to buy. You will also find many samples for you to try.
The Angus Farmers’ Market can be found in the High St, Montrose, on the first Saturday of the month and indoors at the Strathmore Hall, John Street, Forfar on the second Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
