Craigiemains Home and Garden Centre and the Ballantrae Development Group (a sub-committee of the Community Council) are once again joining forces to run a series of Farmers’ Markets.

The first Market of the year will be held on Sunday 17 April from 11am to 3pm in the grounds of Craigiemains Home and Garden Centre, Main Street, Ballantrae.

Susan Crosthwaite of the Ballantrae Development Group who has been taking the lead in organising the Markets on behalf of the Ballantrae Development Group in partnership with Craigiemains said: “We’ve had a great reaction from customers and stallholders to our Farmers’ Markets in the past with Craigiemains being an ideal venue.”

In addition to the goods on sale at the market, at Craigiemains, visitors will also find a coffee shop, gifts, books, garden supplies, a children’s play area, the miniature train and the Visitor Information Point containing ideas for visits to places of interest and activities within easy reach of Ballantrae.

To complement the three Farmers’ Markets in 2016, Ballantrae’s extremely successful Festival of Food and Drink will be repeated again this year on Sunday 12 June.
