Fife Farmers Market is delighted to announce a season of mini food festivals taking place at farmers markets across the Kingdom.

The market festivals kick off at Kirkcaldy Farmers Market on August 29 with a Fruit Festival, celebrating the local soft fruits for which Fife is famous. Visitors to the market will be able take part in a fruit-filled tea party.

The following month a harvest festival will take place in Cupar on September 19.

Set in the heart of Fife’s farming community, this festival will bring seasonal produce to the fore with cookery demonstrations from food writer and chef, Christopher Trotter.

An Edible Autumn festival takes place at St Andrews on October 3. This will be headed up by Martin Hollis, the head chef of the Old Course Hotel.

A Dunfermline Food Fair will take place on October 10 with the monthly farmers market heralding the start of a week long series of events. Christopher Trotter, Fife food ambassador, will be cooking seasonal produce at the market.

The festivals, which are free to attend, take place at the regular Fife Farmers Market and run from 9.00 a.m to 1.00 p.m.
