WHEN IT comes to shopping locally it can’t get any more local than going to your community’s farmers’ market.
For many years now, the monthly farmers’ market in the Tingwall Hall attracts hundreds of folk from far and wide who all enjoy browsing through a wide variety of local produce.
There are tatties and neaps, cheese and meat, homebakes and bread, as well as local crafts, sheepskins, photos, and much more.
A special Christmas Farmers’ Market in the Tingwall Hall is being organised for the 1 December between 10am and 2pm.
Increasingly, other community halls have been following suit doing their own farmers markets often combined with Sunday teas or other events.
Special markets with a Christmas theme are being held in a number of halls during November and December, including:
- 25 November; Baltasound Christmas Craft Fair;
- 25 November; Vidlin Sunday Teas and Craft Market;
- 28 November; Brae Christmas Shopping Night;
- 2 December; Bressay Arts & Crafts Exhibition & Sale;
- 2 December; Farmers’ Market Baltasound Hall, 12noon to 2pm;
- 2 December; Sellafirth Hall – Christmas Fair, 12 noon to 4pm;
