First weekend food market takes place next week

Bowhouse Market Weekends return this month, with the first of 2019 taking place next Saturday and Sunday, 9 and 10 March.

The first market of the year will be a celebration of spring, with a New Beginnings theme to usher in the warmer climes.

Charity partner Marie Curie will be inspiring budding gardeners with a host of spring-themed activities, including daffodil planting, that the whole family can get involved with. The Bowhouse team will also be on hand running seed and planting workshops.

And in case there’s still a touch of frost, Marie Curie will be raising funds by selling delicious homemade soup.

The main hall of Bowhouse will be lined with fresh, seasonal food and drink from across Scotland, as well as stalls from some of Bowhouse’s resident producers. Visitors in March can expect micro greens and edible flowers from The Wright Root, Woodmill Game, Arbroath Quality Fish, and wood-fired sourdough from the Wild Hearth bakery, made using grains grown at Bowhouse by Scotland the Bread.

The covered market will also host a number of street food vendors, with hot and cold treats from Mezzaluna, The Cheesy Toast Shack, Scottish game from Screaming Peacock, and wild crafted beverages from Out-there Artisan. To accompany those visitors tucking in, there will be a line-up of musical talent of local artists.

Bowhouse opened as a hub for artisan food and drink producers in the East Neuk of Fife in summer 2017. Since then the space has grown and it is now home to eight food businesses permanently based there.

Its popular Market Weekends are free to attend and give visitors the opportunity to see, discuss, taste and buy the best food and drink from Fife and beyond; providing the missing link between farm and fork.
