Chapelton farmers’ market series returns

Chapelton is set to welcome its first farmers’ market of the year on Sunday, May 23, paving the way for the return of a series of seasonal events.

Thursday, 6th May 2021, 12:00 am

Hosted in the town’s Burgess Park, the market is held four times a year, and with lockdown restrictions easing, will offer visitors more choice than ever before.

The market forms a calendar of events hosted in the town, including a bike ride in September which will raise funds for charity North East Sensory Services.

Speaking of the event, The Duchess of Fife, Director of Elsick Development Company which is leading the build of Chapelton commented: “The farmers’ markets are one of our most popular events. Residents from the town and visitors love to browse the wide array of stalls that sell great local produce and products, from cut meat and dairy items to cakes and cocktails. There will also be plenty of stalls selling food to take away, such as paella, pizzas and ice cream, so there’s a great choice for everyone.”

Approximately 30 stallholders will be attending the spring market, with new additions including Cookie Cookie Aberdeen and Pure Decadence by Loch Aurora. Longstanding favourites will also be in attendance, including The Cupcake Stop and The Bread Guy.

The market will be open from 11am – 2:30pm on Sunday 23 May, with all stallholders and visitors adhering to current physical distancing regulations. Entry to the market and parking is free of charge.
