East Lothian has a rich history of local produce. Luckily many of us are now starting to appreciate the delicacies provided by our farmers. As well as being fresher for not having travelled miles from field to fork, many of these foods are firmly rooted in their locality, telling a story about the landscape and the farmers who produce them.
You can savour and enjoy the true taste of products at the Haddington Farmersí Market, held on the last Saturday of each month (Christmas market dates vary). Over 20 stalls offer the very best of Scottish meat, fish, traditional baking, cheeses, ice cream, fresh fruit and vegetables as well as apple juice, bouvrage, liqueur and beer. Youíll have the chance to indulge yourself in tastings and the opportunity to buy direct from the producer, as well as watching cooking demonstrations and listening to Haddington Pipe Band.
