Latest farmers market

The first farmers market of the New Year will be held in the Myre, Forfar, this Saturday, bringing locally produced winter produce to the centre of town.

Wintry weather always brings thoughts of warming comfort food like soups and stews, not only good for you but a cost effective way to feed the family.

This month stallholders will be joined by employees from Greenvale Burrelton, who came up with an idea to raise funds for Macmillan.

The idea was to get back to basics and plant and harvest one acre of organic potatoes by hand the old fashioned way.

The variety planted is called Mayan Gold; it has a rich golden coloured flesh and makes beautiful roast potatoes, mash and chips.

In December, a special indoor market was held in the comfort of the Reid Hall and market organisers would like to thank everyone for their support.

The winner of the hamper and the Spot the Meerkat competitions were from Turfbeg and Kingsmuir, and both were delighted with their prizes.

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