Falkland NeighbourFood Launch Fifesí First Digital Farmers Market

Falkland NeighbourFood Launch Fifesí First Digital Farmers Market

Falkland NeighbourFood will be operating Fife's first digital farmersí market from Friday, June 19th. The market will operate out of a converted mid-19th century stable block from the Falkland Estate.

The new service will allow the Estateís farmers, smallholders and orchardists to sell their produce locally, alongside other Fife based producers and growers such as Great Oil and Olives, Leaf Natural Food Wraps, and Bad Gal Boocha, Fifeís first independent kombucha brewery. The new click and collect market will give people the chance to buy food from the estate and other local producers online.

Environmental charity Forth Environment Link, has been instrumental in getting Falkland NeighbourFood off the ground, thanks to a £208,000 grant from the Scottish Governmentís EU LEADER programme to set up click and collect farmerís markets across Scotland. Similar markets have already been successfully established in Stirling, Balfron, Blairgowrie and Peebles, with another opening soon in Megginch, Perthshire. It is hoped a second NeighbourFood market will open in rural Fife later this year.
