July Market Weekend
For a summer weekend packed full of some of the best local produce and producers in Fife and beyond, look no further than the July Market Weekend at Bowhouse, running on Saturday July 13th and Sunday July 14th. As well as the freshest summer produce (from field to fork in a matter of hours), there will also be plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained in support of The Ecology Centre. Bryde Marshall from Falkland Kitchen Farm is also giving a fascinating talk about their five-acre organic market garden nestled at the base of the Lomond Hills in Fife.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the street food quarter to feast on savoury treats from the likes of family-owned Papamacs Gourmet Kitchen, Umi’s Kitchen and The Cheesy Toast Shack. Those with a sweet tooth won’t want to miss out on the heavenly chocolate from Rebel Chocolate or the delightful bakes and treats from Artisana and Dundee Cheesecakes.
In the market hall food producers from the surrounding area will be selling their produce for visitors to take home: think meat from Parkhill Produce and Woodmill Game, fish from Arbroath Quality Fish and Ritchie’s of Rothesay, fresh baked bread from Barnett’s Bakery and Award-winning Wild Hearth Bakery, and seasonal veg from The Wright Root and East Neuk Produce. For the first time, Balcaskie Estate will also be selling some of their own delicious beef and lamb at Bowhouse with a butchery stall – field to fork really doesn’t get much more local than this!
