Hint of spice for Farmers’ Market

INVERURIE Farmers have added extra spice to their March market by embracing a hint of eastern culture.

As part of Scotland‘s Year of Food and Drink, the market has created a link with India to bring the country’s authentic flavours to the streets of the Garioch town this weekend.

Taking place on Saturday, March 12 in Market Square from 9am to 1pm, food lovers will be able to browse the stalls at the special, Indian-themed market and learn from the experts with cookery demonstrations.

Top market chef Tony Heath from the Tony Heath Cook School will be on hand to demonstrate how local market produce can enhance cuisine from around the world and visitors will get the chance to sample his delicious, innovative dishes for themselves.

The event has already been held as part of Perth and Kelso Farmers’ Market and is set to visit Glasgow and Edinburgh later in the month.

Chairman of the Farmers’ Market, Ron Reid said: “It is great to be supporting this Scottish Government initiative. If somebody wants to do something the whole point of the market is that we support them, whether that is supporting local producers or in this case a national initiative.

“We generally have a good crowd and if this draws in some new people so much the better. Tony Heath will be using some local ingredients to cook with and the full range of local produce will again be on sale.”

Inverurie Farmers’ Market takes place on the second Saturday of the month, 9am to 1pm at Market Square, Town Centre.
