A FARMERS' market returns to Forth Valley this weekend.

Stirling Farmers' Market will be taking place on Stirling's Port Street this Saturday, April 23 from 10am until 4pm.

There will be 14 stalls to tempt shoppers with some of Scotland's best produce including Arran's Cheese Shop, the market's longest-standing stallholder.

"I'm not certain exactly when I first started attending Stirling but it's certainly around 20 years now," cheese seller Fi said.

"The market was still held in Maxwell Place and wasn't nearly as popular as it is now.

"We've won Best Scottish Cheese at The World Cheese Awards for three years in a row with our Brie and Blue but having the same customers coming back for nearly two decades is the real sign we're doing something right."

Other produce at this week's market will also include freshly roasted ground coffee and specially blended tea, Italian dishes and delicacies, sausage rolls and pies, cakes and pastries and free range hens' and ducks' eggs.

There will also be Highland beef, fresh fish and shellfish, Scottish honey, artisan breads, handcrafted candles and soaps and artwork.
