Seasonal produce at farmers’ market

Seasonal salads and vegetables will be the order of the day at this Saturday’s Angus Farmers’ Market as Myreside Organics will bring a choice of salad leaves.

Salad is picked the night before or the day of the market making the freshness of the produce hard to beat. The stall also features tomatoes, courgette and lettuce plants ready for planting so customers can grow their own summer vegetables.

Chef Hayley will have eight places at her free adult bite-sized cookery class at 10 a.m. and this month will teach the art of making focaccia. The class is on a first come first served basis. The free children’s cookery club is at the usual time of 11 a.m.

Organisers have also announced a new event planned for October 17 at the Strathmore Hall. The Angus Brewfest will combine fantastic Scottish beers, ales, fizz and cocktails with delicious tapas style foods from some of the market’s producers. There will be live music throughout the day with the Clappy Doo Ceilidh band playing traditional tunes. Tickets are £5 and are available at the market or at Strictly over 18s only. The market is held in the Strathmore Hall, Forfar on the second Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
