TRADERS new and old will line one of Stirling’s busiest streets this weekend as the farmers’ market returns.

Set to be held on Saturday, July 13, the market will feature stalls showcasing some of Scotland’s finest food, drinks and crafts.

This month’s market will feature the return of two traders, who have been absent from recent events, but are back this weekend.

Alastair McIntyre, of Cedar Cottage Country Foods, has been away from the market since April, but is looking ahead to Sunday’s event.

He said: “It’s been a really busy few months with all the summer shows going on as well as the usual markets.

“Plus, we’re running our butchers shop and, of course, looking after our cows.

“We hate missing markets because we don’t want to let any of our regular customers down so I’m sure they’ll be glad to know we’ll be on Port Street on Saturday with plenty of our steaks, bacon, sausages and burgers.”

Alongside Alastair, the award-winning Mindful Roots Tea will be making their return to the market.

The tea company’s product is hand-blended by founder Elle Wanless and based around traditional herbal remedies to help bring balance to mind, body and soul.

Based in Perthshire, Mindful Roots can only visit the Stirling market occasionally, with visitors urged to sample their products while they are here.

There will be other stalls offering products such as Arbroath fish, Arran cheeses, Ayrshire vegetables, Greek and Lebanese deli products.

Stirling Farmers’ Market will be held between 10am and 4pm this Saturday.
