The Faldonside Farmers Market is taking place at Melrose Rugby Club this weekend.
The event, on Saturday, November 27, from 10am-3pm, will raise money for the Borders Children’s Charity, and is sponsored by Paton & Co Estate Agents.
Posy and Pete Maitland-Carew, who live at Faldonside, came up with the idea of hosting an artisan farmers market that would showcase some of their favourite local businesses.
Posy said: ‘We have loved having the last two markets at Faldonside, but we are very excited about its move to Melrose Rugby Club for the festive market on November 27. We have built up a lovely following and have found the last two markets incredibly rewarding, particularly when we have able to raise money for The Borders Children’s Charity at the same time.
‘This next market will see a number of new and returning stall holders, there promises to be a great selection of varied stalls ensuring that there will be plenty of desirable products and artisan produce to choose from on the day!’

Getting to know local businesses and sharing insights with our buyers and sellers is at the heart of what we do. It felt like a perfect fit, especially as the market supports The Borders Children’s Charity. A local charity that exists to help children aged 0-18, living in the Scottish Borders, by relieving poverty, sickness and distress and advancing education.’
