It’s market day!

The month of May brings a summery feel to the Angus Farmers Market, as everyone makes the most of a good spell of weather.

To make your barbecue sizzle there is a fantastic range of meats to cook over the coals including Highland beef, wild boar and rose veal.

This month special offers will be available at Borland Highland Beef and Devenick Dairy.

Stallholders are keen to keep prices competitive but quality is the most important factor when it comes to producing their wares and the proof is in the eating. Eating al fresco can also mean relaxing picnics in the countryside. First class Italian breads will be complemented with tasty cheese, chutneys and pate.

Puddledub Pork is one of the most popular stalls and they make the best pork picnic pie bursting with Puddledub pork and herbs.

Due to a warm spring local strawberries are early this year and these delicious soft fruits can be found at the market this Saturday.

A new season also heralds the return of Antonia from Myreside Organics.

Ashbrook Nursery has a fantastic show of bedding plants and herbaceous shrubs.

The Forfar Fair-trade Steering Group is to attend the market this month. The group is working towards Forfar becoming a fair trade town over the next few months.

Fair trade goods will be available with leaflets and information also available at the stall.

The Angus Farmers Market can be found in the High Street, Montrose on the first Saturday and the Myre, Forfar on the second Saturday of the month from 9 am to 1 pm.
