Ayrshire farmers’ market

This Sunday, 21 August, Ayr Central’s covered square will be filled with local food producers as the Ayr shopping centre play hosts to it’s first Farmer’s Market.

The Farmer’s Market will showcase more than 15 local entrepreneurs who are farmers, producers, bakers, artists and more, representing the best that Ayrshire has to offer.

They will offer seasonal fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, cheese, eggs, fish, breads and cakes and so much more.

By staging the Farmer’s Market, Ayr Central is underlining their commitment to encourage people to shop locally and support their local high street.

The centre says it prides itself on being close to the community and being an integral part of Ayr town centre.

Ayr Central’s centre manager George Reader said: “By playing host to the Ayrshire Farmer’s Market we are turning a visit to the town centre into an event, and knowing what you are eating has low ‘food miles’, helps the environment and supports the great local producers we have on our doorstep.”

To reinforce the environmental benefits of keeping it local, visitors to the market will be able to enter a food mile challenge; by guessing the total number of miles travelled by the local producers one lucky visitor to the market will win £100 produce basket.
